I curated this earlier the day "Snow Fall" came out. Those of you that didn't read /view Snow Fall then need to take some time an experience this as so many of us already have done. The uses of this full blow media story telling feast in Education or just plain self development and life long learning will be amazing. Anyone interested in teaching anything should be aware of this multifaceted story telling and information sharing leap.

If you haven't read the New York Times story "Snow Fall: The Avalanche at Tunnel Creek" you are totally missing a fab reading experience.


So what's this got to do with business storytelling? Because it shows that long-form storytelling is still popular despite all the wailing and moaning about people's short attentions spans destroying storytelling.


The proof is in the pudding -- 3.5 billion page views at the end of Dec. and probably more now.


It is a captivating story and I was immediately hooked reading it.


What can this mean for you? Well for one, don't get all twisted up about only creating short stories. A well-crafted story will always be engaging so don't worry about the length. Worry about crafting it well. You can always shorten it to fit a particular context later.


And second, if you are wanting to share your stories as part of your content strategy, let it rip. But take some lessons from "Snow Fall":

  1. Add visual media.
  2. Pay attention to crafting a powerful beginning. 
  3. Find a place on your website for long-form storytelling.
  4. Share your longer stories orally when you can.
  5. Have fun.


Think about how you can use long-form storytelling to your advantage. Now go read "Snow Fall" and settle in for a great story!

Thanks for your comment Monica and so glad you curated it also. Yes, it is a very powerful story in and of itself, and its implications are far reaching for any kind of knowledge transfer.

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 Best Of TED on 'Story' - TEDxEaling, Inspire, connect and educate | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

In the run up to TEDxEaling 2012, we will be sharing the very best TED talks on story, creativity and imagination. Updated three times a week.

 

I've curated earlier that this TED-X event devoted to storytelling was happening and wishing I could go. In marketing the event, the organizers have put together this list of the best of TED videos related to storytelling. 

 

Some I've curated here, some are new to me (oh goody! new stuff to explore!). What's missing are the videos by Brene Brown, Bobette Buster, Jane McGonigal, and Amy O'Leary that are part of the Just Story It collection. So add these to the list!

 

Enjoy exploring this list and if I find ones here that I like, I'll curate them too. And let me know which ones you like!

Why do marketers revel in military jargon? Must we really rally troops to deploy conquest ads or fire quick hits of bleeding-edge apps?

Empathy, Neurochemistry, and the Dramatic Arc: Paul Zak at the Future of StoryTelling 2012

"The emotionally charged story recounted at the beginning Dr. Paul Zak's film—of a terminally ill two-year-old named Ben and his father—offers a simple yet remarkable case study in how the human brain responds to effective storytelling."

 

Want to know how a dramatic story structure affects our brain chemistry and leads us to make donations? Then watch this very engaging and informative 5 minute video!

 

The video explains several neuroscience research projects that were conducted (don't worry - the video is NOT boring) about the effects a short dramatic story had on people's brains and behavior.

 

And it explains how to structure a story to make the biggest impact. I wish all scientist could do such a great job in explaining their work and its meaning. Enjoy!
