Just stretching the truth a bit
They say that the best stories are those told by the best storytellers. Well, for the rest of us who can’t tell stories to save our lives, what can we do to grab our audience’s attention? We could sprinkle in a few fabrications here and there, just to spice things up a bit.
For instance, when we don’t know whether our story will be interesting enough, we include a stabbing out of nowhere. Sort of like while we were typing this up, someone came into our bedroom window and stabbed our hamster. Don’t let a little thing like truth or facts keep you from being a great storyteller.
