Giving life to the past Storyteller says history more about people than the dates | Reporter Online

Giving life to the past Storyteller says history more about people than the dates | Reporter Online | Life Stories | Scoop.it

Born said she aspires to bring history to life with narratives built around robust characters. With proper research and a strong narrative, history becomes about people rather than dates, she said.

 

Born did not recognize storytelling as her calling until she joined the Champaign-Urbana Storytelling Guild, according to her website. She quickly began developing her prairie woman character and has since interwoven the narrative of her life with that of Lincoln and the Civil War for various events across the state. European folk tales have been an inspiration for Born; to her, folk tales have a way of teaching culture and values while remaining engaging for the listener.

Write Your Story, If Only for Yourself | Chris French blog

Write Your Story, If Only for Yourself | Chris French blog | Life Stories | Scoop.it

A powerful technique to help you identify and tweak your life is to write your story up to this moment. Write it out in whatever manner is comfortable to you - whether in story mode or bullet list. The point is to list out your experiences, accomplishments, failures, highlights... whatever, just tell your entire story in a way that you can look at it and determine if you're living the life you want to be living. If you are, congratulations. If you're not, take stock and take action.

 

The purpose of doing this exercise every so often is to come to terms with the reality you created and allowing you to identify where, and maybe some insights into how, you've fallen short. It will also put a spotlight on where you've shined and fulfilled your desires.

Family Folklore: How to Collect Your Own Family Folklore | Smithsonian

Family Folklore: How to Collect Your Own Family Folklore | Smithsonian | Life Stories | Scoop.it

Every family is unique. Every folklore fieldworker has his or her own special interests and style of interviewing. Because of this diversity, no single set of questions will successfully elicit folklore from all families. The most useful questions will be those that you develop through knowledge of yourself and your family.

 

For your initial efforts the following 16 questions may be helpful. Just remember that they are meant to be suggestive, not absolute. Pick and choose among them as you see fit. By all means change the wording to suit your own situation and personality.

Storytelling: How To Write a Book With Your Kids and Capture Family Memories | Mom It Forward | Life Stories | Scoop.it

Every family has a story. Some stories are funny, others are heartwarming, and some family stories are educational. There are mothers who write about autism or about adoption. I have seen celebrities write books about cooking, parenting, acting, or what it’s like in live in Hollywood. Katy Perry could write a book about what it was like being a small town Christian girl who exploded on the music scene as one of the biggest stars in the world. Nothing in our life is ever clean and simple. Whatever you’ve been through, it is a story that could possibly help someone else.

 

How To Write a Book With Your Kids

Here are some ides to get your stories down on paper and involve the whole family.
