Hi, i really like the way you tell your story in ggar. I think someone already asked you this one day but how can i become good at storytelling? To tell stories in a captivating way.
- Make it alive. Don’t just say things, tell things. Pour yourself into it. Don’t hold back with ideas.
- Remember, you’re telling the story to people who are not you, nor experienced the same things as you, nor are in your head. Being aware of it helps making your story clear to the reader’s eyes.
- Captivate yourself. Love your own story. Or live a love/hate relationship with it, that’s okay too. As long as you put your passion into it, and live it. See first tip.
-There’s a hell lot of things to say about writing stories. I can’t explain them all, mostly because I probably don’t know about most of them. What I mean is: make it your own experience. Those things I mentioned? That’s how I write my stories. The thing with creating something: everyone has their own methods, their own philosophies. Mine is just one out of millions of them.
“1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough.”—things to remember, -n.m. (via exoticwild)
