Storytelling Tip of the Day
Storytelling Tip #3
Stories Need A Binary Question. A simple "yes" or "no" question that keeps your audience engaged. Will the princess find her Prince Charming? Will Dorothy make it out of OZ? Will Katniss survive the Hunger Games? Something about posing this question keeps you watching. Once the question is posed, you have to find out what happens. Even in reality TV or sporting events, the binary question has you glued to the screen. Who will win? You keep watching because that unanswered question makes you feel uncomfortable. You want to know. YOU NEED TO KNOW.
