    • 23. Storytelling Tips
      In storytelling there are two basic building blocks, says Ira Glass:(1)The anecdote, a sequence of actions, a story in its purest form, one thing following from another (rather than just disjointed "facts").
      (1a) Raise questions. Provide the "bait." The anecdote should raise a question right from the beginning. Implied in any question that you raise, however, is that you are going to answer it. Constantly raise questions and answer them. The shape of the story is that you are throwing out questions and answering them along the way.
      (2)The moment of reflection. What is the key point? What does this all mean? It is not just a series of facts/events. Many people get the first part, they tell an interesting sequence of events, but in the end it fails because it doesn't say anything new, it did not have meaning. And sometimes people have the reflection part and the question is clear in their mind, but they fail to put it in a sequence that compels people to follow and engage.
