“Firelight will not let you read fine stories, but it’s warm, and you won’t see the dust on the floor.” ~ Celtic Saying
Tomorrow, October 28th is Tell a Story Day in Scotland and in the United Kingdom. http://bit.ly/11gmg3. Telling stories verbally and through the written word can be fulfilling for both narrator and for the listener or reader!
What a great opportunity to use creativity to tell stories orally.
- Tell a scary story – dim the lights, illuminate the room with some candles and creep the listener right out of their seat!
- Reminisce about your favorite family story. Use old family photos to enhance the images you paint in words.
- Seize the moment, act silly and use your wit to tell a hilarious, goofy tale.
- Host a murder mystery party story. Have your guests be the gumshoe in solving “who done it.”
- Tell a Cinderella love story and dress the part! Don’t forget the handsome young prince too.
- Do a little research on your favorite era in history. Dress in period clothing and do some play acting to recount the tale or the event.
Do you like telling stories through writing? In the United States, the perfect opportunity to start writing your novel is coming up. November is National Novel Writing Month!
