THE STORY REALM: WATCH THIS! And the STORY goes . . . BEWARE! of the critic - your critic! This is my slide video on my channel on BobbieTales youtude.com about storytelling. I challenge you to tell a verbal story, if only the trees are the audience. Tell the story to your friends, or go to a swap near you. Check out NSN, National Storytelling Network or SAC Storytelling Association of California. There are associations in other countries also.

From THE STORY REALM: Hare and the Turtle

THE STORY REALM: Hare and the Turtle: One of my favorites fables because I think of myself as a turtle, slow and steady and some how winning the race. The turtle in eastern countries holds up the world.

Describing fantasy characters or beasts!

When describing a fantasy character think movement. Move their wings, feet, arms, faces, ears, eyes, heads around in your mind as you see the beastie. Then think of the voice or noise it makes. Best of all, become the creature; you are the actor: stand up, and talk, move as you want the creature to act. The more you move, the more you speak as the character or beastie, the better your description of the character in your verbal telling as well as your written words. When you charge the looks or emotions of a fantasy character, put in hints of the movements and voice, you visualize. Seed us clues along the way to create surprise. (Remember, do not describe all at once, which is boring and has no suspense). All of us have some idea how to visualize a griffin, dragon, monster, wizard or witch, warrior or princess in our minds; we need just a bit of your imagined details and off we go into our minds to enjoy your story.
