Did you miss out on learning to tell stories at school?

I did Latin at school.  I am mostly OK with nouns, verbs and sentence strucuture.   But I was taught to write in the dry style of academic reports.

I am not alone.  Those of us who wasted our time with this type of education, have literally to be re-educated to tell a story, about someone, with sentence structures that are easy on the ear and inviting to the reader.

We start a long way back.   It’s not that we can’t grasp the mechanics.  We don’t really have the concept, let alone the experience.

Another for telling a story or designing a popular event

Well here is another list of steps that are useful for telling stories and designing events as a story.   I found it in an old notebook and didn’t want to throw it away.

#1 Persona

#2 Event

#3 Immersive

#4 Avatar walks the talk [I added a note here - multiple voices?]

#5 Position yourself.  Does fashion determine the event?  Or does the event determine fashion?  I wonder what this means?  Whatever, my notes say that your position affects who joins in.

#6 Think about Gen Y and the accoutrements of Gen Y – mobile phones, virtual money, etc.

#8 Defragmentation [?]

#9 Fashion exclusivity

Well, I wonder where that list came from?  It looks as if it will be fairly useful for evaluating a plan or diagnosing your reaction to a plan.

Can you elaborate any part of it for me?
