This a great list, but, perfect?  I don't know about that :)  Stories aren't a magic bullet. However, applying these elements and telling the right story+right time+right audience... can make an emotional connection with your audience that impacts your business.

Guusje Moore's insight:

December the 4th is National Cookie Day! Celebrated with a cookie decorating party for your best readers.  Buy some cheap cookies, some tubs of icing and lots of candy and turn your kids loose.  Another option is to make cookie pizzas using slice n' bake cookie and let your kids work in groups & make a cookie pizza.  Provide paper plates and cling wrap so they can take their creations home with them.
