Classic story themes oOvercoming the Monster oThe Quest oTragedy oRebirth oVoyage and Return oRags to Riches A hero is tasked with destroying a monster (not necessarily a literal one). Overcoming the Monster

The Quest A hero steps forth to perform a task, and usually has friends/allies around to help out Tragedy The protagonist wants something so badly that they lose part of themselves in trying to get it. By the end they are no longer themselves A main character is almost on the path to tragedy, but something happens that allows them to see themselves from the outside and so do something about it

Rebirth A main character, through their own efforts (and maybe supernatural help), is able to rise above their station in life and achieve what they desire. Rags to Riches The protagonist finds him or herself in a world where nothing makes sense, with no understanding of who is friend and who is foe. Finally they learn the ropes of the world and can act upon this knowledge.

Make your life a story worth telling! Crafting your story 1. Determine the theme 0 Creativity and innovation 0 Courage 0 Leadership 0 Assertiveness 0 Teamwork and collaboration 0 Perseverance 0 Helpfulness

0 Others????? 2. Figure out the key message 0 What is your goal in telling the story? 0 What does the story mean to you? 0 What did you learn or gain from the experience? 0 What do you want the audience to believe after sharing the story? 0 What do you want the audience to do after sharing the story?

3. Start the story Paint the picture 0 Whats the setting? 0 What kind of day was it? 0 Who is the main character? (Hero, Protagonist) 0 What s the hero/protagonist doing or feeling? 0 What other characters are present? 0 What are the other characters doing? 4. Determine the conflict or problem 0 What is the core struggle in the story?

0 What does the main character want? 0 What are the complications? 0 What are the barriers that stand in the main characters way? 0 Who is the bad guy in the story? An irritating person/rule/regulation/organizational value, maybe the status quo or a combination? The story arc

It is the sequence of events that keep the listener moving along in the story Transformed State (What Could Be) Current State (What is) 5. Lay out the story arc When thinking about the story arc

1. 2. 3. 4. 5. What is the sequence of events? When is the defining moment in the story? How are the characters feeling? How is the conflict resolved? What is the new awareness that the main character has?

6. Unfold the plot 0 How do the events flow in the story? 0 What happens first, second, third and so on? 0 What steps are taken to bring us to the end?

Grab peoples attention What can you do to strengthen the emotional element of the story? What tension can you build into the story by waiting to reveal key pieces? Does the nature of your story allow for humor? What unexpected event can you add into the story to add drama and surprise?

Getting your story to POP Bringing characters to life Empathy for your characters Distinguishing features and gestures Speaking styles of characters Fears of the characters Goals and needs of the characters Sensory imagery and contrast o What additional visual scenes can you paint for

listeners? o Where can you add stark contrasts? o Where can you add contrast of environmental elements? o What irony can you add to further enhance your story? o Where could you add figure of speech to boost contrast and enhance imagery? Oxymorons, metaphors and similes, analogies, and aphorisms Using humor to lighten the mood 0 Conceptual funny words,

phrases and silly ideas that relate to your story 0 Physical how do you use your body, gestures, and facial expressions to invoke humor 0 Vocal pay attention to rhythm, tempo, volume, inflection and timing

7. End the story The four main parts 1. The resolution of the conflict 2. The key message of the story 3. The transition to an action statement 4. The action statement These key questions must

align: How is the conflict resolved? How are characters changed? What must the listeners do next? What actions can they take to get the results they desire? In summary we have

The opening scene Then something happens (the conflict) Barriers/complications appear Barriers/complications are overcome Resolution occurs

New insights gained The end and parting message is offered Remember the 5 Cs oCharacters oConflict oCure oChange oCarryout Message
