Story Structure Diagrams « Ingrid's Notes

Story Structure Diagrams « Ingrid's Notes | Joomla Web Development |
Yes, it's true, I've had story structure on the brain. I've also recently joined pinterest (of which I immediately became addicted). But there's a happy side effect of these two obsessions… this post!


Holy Cow! Here's a blog post with 10 different diagrams on story structure! I doubt you will ever need another story structure diagram after looking at these.


Some are similar. Some have their own unique twist. And then there's the 17 stages of Joseph Campbell's Monomyth to explore. Yikes -- that's a big one!


Of course, the simplest story structure is: problem -- resolution. Add to that a set-up/context in the beginning and a meaningful close at the end, and you are done.


Hah -- would that storytelling could be so simple! As every professional storyteller will tell you, a powerful story is all in the delivery. Still, if you don't follow the structures in these diagrams, you will simply end up with a plot-based description: "I went to the store. I bought some bread. I came home." No story there! I doubt you would pay money for that one.


Soooo -- check out these diagrams, use them to craft your stories, and you are half-way there. Then go work on your delivery :)

The Hidden Cost of Counting the Homeless

The Hidden Cost of Counting the Homeless | Joomla Web Development |

A professor criticizes the "culture of quantification," (in the journal cultural geographies) arguing that we don't do enough with the data we collect.  If all we do is count (or attempt to count the homeless), does that help them in any way or change the realities that lead to homelessness?  Are we counting them just to give us the numbers to receive credit that may help other programs but not help the homeless?  Is data for data's sake of any value?

Best Practices in Data Visualization

Best Practices in Data Visualization | Joomla Web Development |

In this new world of exploding data volumes, the ability to make sense of all this data and effectively communicate insights from it is a highly valued skillset. Communicating trustworthy insights includes choosing the appropriate data visualizations to tell a story or make a key point. That may seem trivial at first, but in fact, it is quite powerful. In some fields such as research, healthcare or military, the use of data and visualizations has specific guidelines since misinterpretations could impact human lives.

Most of the time getting data visualizations right is not a life and death matter, but it is important. There are several highly-regarded thought leaders with excellent reading material on this topic, including Stephen Few and Edward Tufte. If you have not read any of their books and you are in an analytics/business intelligence profession, consider this a “must do” before you build another report or dashboard.

In the meantime, read the article at the link for more details, a few of the most common mistakes and some best practices to keep in mind...
