A Point of View: 

A Point of View All stories are told to make a point. You, as the author, need to figure out what you intend the viewer to “get.” What message are you trying to convey? In other words, what is the theme?

A Dramatic Question: 

A Dramatic Question A good story has a “hook” that will hold the attention of the audience until the story is over.

Emotional Content: 

Emotional Content A story that deals with our emotions, - such as loss, love, loneliness, courage, acceptance, rejection, hardship, etc. - will help the audience maintain their attention.

Your Voice: 

Your Voice The way you use your voice can impact the story you tell. Tone of Voice: Slow, Fast, Loud, Soft The tone of the storyteller’s voice provides the drama and sets the mood, while engaging the reader. It draws the reader into the plot development through the use of story elements. Caution: You don’t want your final project to sound like you are reading your paper. Practice!


Soundtrack Music sets the mood. The goal is to match the music to the story. Instrumental music, without words, works the best to create an appropriate mood. The focus should be the narration and the music should support and enhance the storytelling. Use only copyright-free music! (Soundzabound)


Economy Use the least amount of images required to tell the story. Your selection of pictures and drawings should illustrate the theme without becoming a distraction. Too many images tend to confuse the audience.


Pacing Changing the pace of the story can be very effective. The narrative can have pauses, the music can change tempo, and the images can be set to enter at different rates of speed. Changing pace allows the audience to concentrate, think, and maintain interest.
