5 Ways I am Exploring To Build Storytelling Muscles

"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you." - Maya Angelou

    1. Log Dreams

    "Dreams are messages from the deep." - Dune

    "Dreams help you solve problems.

    1. Our conscious minds absorb data during the day. As we sleep, our subconscious minds process and make sense of the data.
    2. The advice to “sleep on it” is responsible for several artistic and scientific breakthroughs.
    3. Paul McCartney came up with Yesterday in a dream.
    4. Mary Shelley created Frankenstein in a dream.
    5. Albert Einstein developed the theory of relativity, Dmitri Mendeleev saw the periodic table, and Renée Descartes realized the framework for the scientific method – all in dreams.
    6. Jack Nicklaus changed his golf swing in a dream.
    7. Elias Howes invented the sewing machine partly because of a dream."

    2. Reflections

    Reflect on the previous day, the learnings, the mistakes, and the key story. Say I had a client meeting. Describe the meeting room, the questions asked, who set where etc.

    3. Log Events

    Simply log events from the day: What book have I read. Who are the characters, and what was the plot. There is always a plot, even in technical books.

    4. Ideas from idea lists into stories

    I remember James mentioned that he had a story for each idea. I want to see if I can do that on my idea list or ideas from the community. There were ideas about how to make money from TikTok. Maybe I will check a TikTok influencer and write a story that features the influencer.

    5. A What-If Story

    A What-If story in which we are the main character. What if I can read 10X faster today. How will I help others? Think Phenomenon, the movie, when George, the character played by John Travolta, read a dictionary in 20 min to learn to speak Portuguese to help someone in need who could not speak English.
