Telling Stories

Came across youtube of Ira Glass talking about storytelling. All you writers out there, do yourself a favor: Watch all four segments. He's talking about broadcasting, but his ideas on story are simply brilliant. Last night I read every interview I could find with him and learned approximately 3000 useful things. Give or take....

In terms of story-telling, I'm not sure old Ira has a lot to teach you.

These are things you have done instinctively all along, whether you've realized it or not.

Thanks for the links to Ira Glass. I finally had time to sit and listen today. The first one was especially helpful.

He's great to listen to. Thanks for the link! David Sedaris comes to mind immediately as the kind of story teller he's talking about.
