My notes from the Ira Glass presentation, somewhat stream of consciousness:
- Stories have characters, situations
- Make people stick around
- Glass uses storytelling strategies
- Essay form vs. “something is about to happen”
- Suspense; it’s about emotion; sequence of action; sense of forward motion; “it’s headed somewhere” – suspense kicks in
Thanks to Denise Graveline for “Tweeting” about Ira Glass’ wonderful keynote talk on storytelling tonight. We hope to have some notes on his presentation later.
