Mini-discussion
 Why do we tell stories?
What makes a story great?



                    http://3oneseven.com/29/singin-in-the-rain/
Stories are important
cognitive events, for they

encapsulate
information, knowledge,
context, and emotion.
--Don Norman, Things That Make Us Smart
                                          danorbit.
Stories Use Concrete
Language

                       JD Hancock
Concrete language grabs
attention by appealing to the
five senses.
Stronger imagery creates
deeper impressions on a
reader.

The restaurant was shaped like a big bottle, though squatter than a
real bottle, and on its cap was a revolving figure of a grinning
boy holding a hamburger aloft.
--Joyce Carol Oates, “Where are you Going, Where have you Been?”
Smell
                             Often used metaphorically
Andrew Morrell Photography
...I remembered clearest of all...how the bedroom smelled of
  the lumber it was made of and of the wet woods whose scent
  entered through the screen. --E.B. White, “Once More to the Lake”

James Jordan
Taste



          Gustatory, detecting flavor--related to smell
ani-bee
...the walking boots that taste
            of Atlantic and Pacific salt...
                --Robert Frost, “A Record Stride”




striatic

Vox Efx
...there came to my ears a low,
        dull, quick sound, such as a
        watch makes when enveloped
        in cotton.... It was the beating
        of the old man's heart.
          --Edgar Allan Poe, “The Tell Tale Heart”




alvaro tapia hidalgo
Touch


           Tactile experience and

Shemer
You grasp the bark by a rugged pleat,
   And look up small from the forest's feet.
   --Robert Frost, “On Going Unnoticed”
