How to Tell a Story:
an Introduction

David Sidwell
See = a metaphor for all seven senses.
1. Seeing
2. Hearing
3. Touching
4. Tasting
5. Smelling
6. Seeing dead people
7. Emotions
As a storyteller imagines the story taking place in her mind, she simply tells her audience what she sees.
The more clear the images in the mind of the storyteller, the more effective the storytelling will be.
The mind sees the images and tells the body and the voice what to do to make the communication of the images clear.
Get inside the characters' minds
See what they see.
Feel what they feel.
Show us.
Showing is more important than telling!
Images are more important
than information!
Images inspire and motivate.
Information is boring.
So make the images come to life with your voice and body.
It's that image thing again.
"Being" with your body = Stance, Face, Gesture.
Stance: your body's posture.
Your face is very communicative!
Gesture is using your hands and other body parts.
Storytelling is all about sharing yourself,
not just a story.
Be yourself.
You're amazing!
Let your personality come through by your word choices and the way you communicate.
A story is a precious gift.
Telling a story can be an art form
the more one
the more one
the more one uses one's personality, and the more one pays attention to making the communication vibrant, effective and IMAGE-BASED.
Open your mouth!
Tell a story!
Trust your mind.
