Become a Lucid Storyteller
Sometimes, what a story needs most is hidden from our view
As Seen On:
Hello there, I’m David, and I roar in my sleep.
My growling wakes up my wife so I ask her what animal I sound like.
She says a lion. Then a tiger. Wait, now I’m a cub.
She giggles, she laughs…. At me, and with.
But that’s okay, I know I’m a strange one…
* End frowned upon semi-dream sequence *
I’m strange with eyes wide open, too. I just conceal it much of the time.
Maybe that’s why I love to write. I’m more open with my keyboard, and I permit my strangeness to shine on the page. You’re a writer like me so I’m thinking you’re different, too.
If so, I’m thankful because that means you’re unique.
Your uniqueness helps you create a story no other writer can duplicate. And a one-of-a-kind story has the ability to connect with people.
It can inspire them.
It may change them.
It must entertain them.
But before it can do any of those, you have to develop your compelling story that only you can put into words. Assuming you’re open to a new perspective, I think I can help.
Okay fine, design is really just code for a proven framework. But structure and creativity can coexist. Better yet, they can complement each other.
Straight up, I believe structure can help you finish a story that connects with readers.
Because people have been encouraged to receive stories in a special format. It’s based on countless years of this approach being used in nearly every form of entertainment.
Right or wrong, it’s there.
Every novel I’ve read had this storytelling conduit living inside it. The same goes for movies and television shows. Even the 20/20 murder specials use it.
All stories have a pulse and once you experience it, you may be surprised you didn’t see it before. It definitely opened my eyes.
I became lucid in that moment.
My confidence got a crazy boost, too. I saw how harnessing basic principles would help me craft a story that impacted readers. My current project uses these fundamentals and it’s the story I’ll be proud to self-publish.
Here is where I seek to become lucid to the stories living on and off the page. I also seek to offer you a storytelling experience like never before.
I invite you to be among the lucid.
