Storytelling

7 Mar

Check out this link for storytelling templates like:

Your story can be told in four simple parts:

  • Once upon a time: The introduction. Set the stage; where does your story start?
  • Suddenly: The story’s characters are confronted with a challenge.
  • And then: The characters take action to address it.
  • Happily ever after: How did it all work out?

ONCE UPON A TIME, THERE WAS A DEAR CO-WORKER

who engaged us with her

Vivacious vocation

Profound profession

Lessons of livelihood

Existential experience

SUDDENLY, THERE WAS TRANSITION TO RETIREMENT

AND THEN WE GATHERED TO TELL OUR STORIES

Inspired by names of paint colors, comic strips, images of chocolate, popcorn, a transmission and “golden” nest eggs;

we honored our long time friend

and recanted the habits of highly effective people which she embodies.

More names of paint colors on the second storyboard panel inspired dreams of travel adventures around the world.

…and a happily ever after.

Credit to Liza Hyatt for using paint names for input to creative writing projects.  Just maybe this story evolves and becomes poetry, lyrics, short story, article, autobiography or novel.

I actually applied paint chips to the storyboards in these photos as well as calendar images, wrapping paper, Christmas card, decorative paper, puzzle and a Designed Experiment matrix.
