    • A Point of View All stories are told to make a point.   You, as the author, need to figure out what you intend the viewer to “get.” What message are you trying to convey? In other words, what is the theme? 09/12/07 Maggie Veres
    • A Dramatic Question A good story has a “hook” that will hold  the attention of the audience until the story is over. Many stories end dramatically with a  “Punchline” 09/12/07 Maggie Veres
    • Emotional Content A story that deals with our emotions,  - such as loss, love, loneliness, courage, acceptance, rejection, hardship, etc. - will help the audience maintain their attention. 09/12/07 Maggie Veres
    • Your Voice The way you use your voice can impact the  story you tell. Tone of Voice: Slow, Fast, Loud, Soft  The tone of the storyteller’s voice provides the drama and sets the mood, while engaging the reader. It draws the reader into the plot development through the use of story elements.  Caution: You don’t want your final project to sound like you are reading your paper. Practice! 09/12/07 Maggie Veres
    • The Power of Props Music can set the mood.  The goal is to match the music to the story. Use simple props, like a hat, glasses, a wand.  They help keep the audience’s attention. You can also use visual content; pictures, a  presentation, to help tell the story. 09/12/07 Maggie Veres
    • Economy Use the least amount of images / words  required to tell the story.  Your selection of pictures and words should illustrate the theme without becoming a distraction.  Too little is BETTER THAN too much 09/12/07 Maggie Veres
    • The Last Tip THERE IS NO ONE WAY! RULES ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN! 09/12/07 Maggie Veres
    • Pacing Changing the pace of the story can be  very effective. The narrative can have pauses, the music can change tempo, and the images can be set to enter at different rates of speed.  Changing pace allows the audience to concentrate, think, and maintain interest. 09/12/07 Maggie Veres
