Favorite quote: The problem with auteurism is that sometimes you get, say, “Taxi Driver” or “The Godfather.” And sometimes you get “Heaven’s Gate” or “The Bonfire of the Vanities.”

Exploration of the value and meaning in physical objects despite an increasingly digital world through art that combines material objects with digital environments."

Ayoka Chenzira:

"Stuff has history, it has a meaning…. If you ask people to talk about themselves, they don't know where to start, where the entry point is. But if you say to them, "Can you tell me about that object on the counter?", suddenly the narratives come pouring out."

Storyboard tools or any apps that save you time and help you create the stories you need to or want to tell are welcome. While not all the tools here will necessarily suited to your workflow or needs, at least one or two will.

The denshosha have an authority that comes with the survivor’s blessing to be “heirs” to their stories... and a mandate to keep finding audiences. Survivors often visit schools, for instance, something denshosha could do in their place.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, July 16, 2015 6:39 PM

Ffion Lindsay at Sparkol does another terrific job putting together 8 story structures any business can use, then gives us examples for each. Better yet, for each structure she shares with us what situations they are good for. Yay!


If you are looking to refresh your stories and just want to play with sharing your stories in different ways -- or are stuck not knowing how to tell one of your stories -- then grab this article.


If you use these other structures, you won't get stuck in the monomyth of the hero (a good thing).


Monomyth dangers

I have noticed one piece of language changing, however. That is the word "Monomyth". Mono means one or alone. Mono + myth means one myth. Joseph Campbell coined this term to refer to the Hero's story as the one all encompassing archetype for narratives. From there it morphed into also meaning a narrative common to all people. But it has a stranglehold on our storytelling, as if there are no other kinds of stories to tell.


Now the word is being used without question. Make sure you listen to the video in this article by Chimamanda Adichie on The Danger Of A Single Story.


The monomyth of the hero's journey is eclipsing other kinds of stories to tell. In the mad rush for business storytelling, the hero's journey is often touted as the only story to pay attention to. Stories of community, origin stories, how we do things, cautionary tales, and the like are neglected, but we are starving for them.


Anyway, enjoy playing with these structures and well done Ffion!
