Example text

Luckily, that’s much easier and more natural. The gist includes the main flow of events (the plot), the characters and their goals and struggles, and the emotional flow or mood of the story. That is what you are used to learning and telling for your own stories. “Getting it right” for you will mean just two things: (1) get the story characters and events (sequences) across to your listeners, and (2) tell it in such a way that your natural enthusiasm and passion for the story shines through in your telling.

Recalling them and converting them into language and gesture is remembering. You naturally do it all the time. That’s learning and remembering. KEEP IT SIMPLE Advice about learning stories is thick on the ground. Each book or article dutifully lists techniques and suggestions. The remarkable part is the spectrum.

These two types of cooking have radically different mandates and expectations. Which are you trying to do with your storytelling? You’re going to be a community level storyteller, so the answer is: cook a nutritious and tasty meal for your listeners.
