The story we tell is the most powerful tool we have for creating the stories we want to tell.
But how do we do it right?
I often find myself asking myself: How do we create stories that are both meaningful and fun?
That’s the ultimate challenge of storytelling.
I recently stumbled upon a wonderful TED talk by writer and director Jordan Peterson.
It’s titled How to Write a Better Story.
It’s a brilliant talk that explains how to craft the stories you want to create.
It offers a few tips for the creation of the stories that you want your readers to love.
And I’d like to share with you how I think these tips work.
