Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 2, 2013 4:53 PM

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!

I read Wendell Berry's work and he asks many of the same questions. Values are what give us strength and courage (the French valoir). They ground us in our working and living giving us a sense of purpose and trueness. Trueness is the moral compass we seek in making sound ethical choices in daily life.
