10 inspirational moments from Lisa Cron ...

10 inspirational moments from Lisa Cron

1. Story is what makes us human - we're wired to take information in through stories.

2. Story is how what happens affects someone who is trying to achieve what turns out to be a difficult goal, and how he/she changes as a result.

3. Stories should always answer the question - how is this going to help or hurt me?

4. Story is always about our human challenge and struggle - it helps zero in on what we need to change internally.

5. Three things that will evolve from a good story - all is not as it seems. A pattern has been broken and something needing to happen to fix it.

6. Every decision we make is emotional - stories trigger that emotion.

7. Hope is the emotion that you always want to leave with people.

8. Answer these Four Questions to write an effective story:

- Who's your audience and how do they see the world?

- What action do you want them to take?

- Why aren't they doing it now?

- Figure out what they need to overcome that fear?

9. To be believable, let your story make you seem vulnerable.

10.There's no writing - There's only rewriting.



Best Advice: Everybody feels like they're faking it!
