Subject: Telling stories
I read your entry in Poynter’s newsletter about telling stories and I CAN NOT agree more.
I’m about to start selling my first book on becoming a better lawyer, probably as an ebook.
It’s 73,000 words.
And I found that THE BEST WAY to write it was:
“Here’s a principle you need to learn to become better at this.
“And here’s the story of how I learned it.”
I’ve found that by merely repeating the title of that section to someone that’s heard the story, the story — and the principle — come back to mind rather quickly.
Thank you for your entry.
Let’s hope A LOT of writers take you to heart.
Tell us what your experience has been…
Remember, keep doing something everyday toward your book and promotion.
