50 Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story

Added 08/06/2012

You'll have to dig around this one a little bit, but focus on the "3 steps" hyperlink area. Clicking on the first step will yield videos and tons of links to good places to go to start your own story ideas.

Watch Chapter 1 and think about all the details, the suspense, and the action. Let me know if you ended up watching more Chapters. :)


The Hero's Journey

Added 08/06/2012

Every good story writer and consumer needs to understand Joseph Campbell's "The Hero's Journey." Be warned: after you become familiar with Campbell's theory, you will never be able to watch a movie the same way again. :)
