Books Info:

The Art and Craft of Storytelling free pdf Not much has changed in 20,000 years. We still look to stories for excitement, wisdom, and comfort, as well as a connection to our past.Some people are born with the gift of storytelling. Even if you're not among those fortunate few blessed with this inherent talent, most of us know a good story when we see or hear or read one. Storytelling is not only a gift. It is an art and a craft.Like any other craft, storytelling has rules. Once you've mastered the rules, you can break the rules or create new ones. But whatever you do, you will always have a basic foundation to build on. A good story flows from a solid understanding of writing and structure, along with a confident grasp of character, plot, and dialogue.This book deals with those fundamentals. It explores beginnings, middles, and ends- what keeps readers turning the pages- premise, theme, and tone- and many other elements of storytelling.
