Vivalist's curator insight, January 23, 2015 10:36 AM

"1,000 people in the U.S. will get early access on January 21 to an alternative, free app version, but have only 24 hours to finish it before it disappears in [...] "a cinematic and spectacular way." If you're not one of the first 1,000 readers, you can still follow their progress in real-time and have the ability to "steal" time from those readers through a new site, SelfDestructingBook.com. Designed to
bring the thrill of Patterson’s book to new heights, the site shows who and where in the world the book's early readers are, how far along through the book they've read and gives you the option to sabotage their efforts by cutting their 24 hours short."

How To Tackle Mistakes + Feedback Through Storytelling

How To Tackle Mistakes + Feedback Through Storytelling | SPECULATIVE FICTION | Scoop.it
Whether it's the sandwich method of criticism, direct criticism, or persuasion methods, there are plenty of strategies you can use to convince someone to change their ways. Tell someone a relatable, convincing story to get them to see the consequences of their actions and change.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 21, 2015 12:31 PM

This is a very quick article that connects directly with another post I curated today on Similar Stories and their use in sales.


This article by Tori Reid talks about how to talk about mistakes by sharing a Similar Story. The application in this case is to help someone change their behavior. Of course, it could apply to sales situations also. In the field of Folklore we would call these 'cautionary tales'.


Regardless, the point of this piece is how to offer criticism in indirect, yet powerful ways through storytelling. Reid shares 2 reasons why this works.


I wouldn't use this technique 100% of the time, but it is important to have in your storytelling tool box.
