Storytelling

In every event in my life, I’ve always thought, ‘how will I tell it afterward?’

It wasn’t even conscious; I’ve just always loved telling people about my life and the cool stuff that I’m doing. And, to be honest, it was always part of the reason I did those cool things. 🙆 These thoughts made me approach girls, go on crazy adventures, but most importantly, they made me a storyteller 🏞️ The Art of Storytelling is probably the most widespread of arts; We live our lives through stories 🤩 Yuval Noah Harari explains in his book ‘Sapiens’ how stories (and particularly gossip) enabled us to build bonds with our group and allo


wed us to expand it. Stories are why humans rule the world, they make us understand life better, and we learn better through them. 🧙‍♂️🧛‍♀️🧝‍♀️🕵️‍♂️ As an art, though, Storytelling has been banished from the big schools of arts. Robert McKee explains how the current generation of writers had been undereducated in the prime principles of Story. In Hollywood, many Screenwriters don’t know how to tell a good story anymore. Many Playwrights and Novelists share the sam


e problem. The decline of Story ⏬ “European academics generally deny that writing can, in any sense, be taught, and as a result, courses in Creative Writing have never been included in the curriculum of Continental universities. Europe does, of course, foster many of the world’s most brilliant art and music academies. Why it’s felt that one art is teachable, another not, is impossible to say.” Taken from ‘Story: Structure, Substance, and the Principles of Screenwriting.’ Me? I love studying. I study every day 🧐👨‍💻 School wasn’t for me, neither is university. I think tests had made us so concerned about numbers that we forgot to learn the big picture 🤷‍♂️ This is my only way of learning. Theory, Principles, and hands-on practice. Now, studying Storytelling is leaving me in awe. There is so much to learn. I can’t wait to know more and see how it improves my writing 📖✍️ 🎺🎺🎺 Now, as promised, ‘The Separation’ announcement! 🎺🎺🎺 Find it in my blog next Sunday! ☀️ It’s my first short Story, and I’m soo excited to share it with you! 😍 Don't worry, I'll remind my followers beforehand and at the time of publish 🙂 -Link for my blog is in my bio-
