Tell your story perfectly

Instructions

  1. Choose the right time for your story.
    Your story should fit the mood of the conversation or relate to something someone said.
  2. Tell personal stories.
    Sharing personal stories are a great way to connect with others.
  3. Start the story with a hook.
    Hold the interest of your audience by starting with a statement that catches their attention and cues them into what’s coming up in the story. For example, you can start with, “The most daring thing I ever did was to stand up to a bully who had been intimidating the entire class for two years”.
  4. Have a clear point.
    Is your purpose to entertain or to educate others?
  5. Use vivid details, not lots of facts.
    Add elements of surprise and other descriptive elements to help readers imagine the scene or relate to the issue at hand.
  6. Share first-hand thoughts and feelings.
    When you tell a story about something that happened to you, include how you felt and what you were thinking.
  7. End your story with a satisfying conclusion.
    Stop when you get to the end of your story - don’t drag the ending out.
