Author Kurt Vonnegut on the Storytelling Outline

Kurt Vonnegut

In the video below, author Kurt Vonnegut, talks to an audience about storytelling. In very plain and simple terms (while writing on a chalkboard) he shows us the not-so-easy art of storytelling.

The video looks to be from the 1970s, however, the information is relevant today.

In fact, Vonnegut speaks to the story outline that EVERY SINGLE STORY since the BEGINNING of TIME has ever used.

It’s true that storytelling is the most ancient form of entertainment. A good story well told lives inside a person. A good story changes our psyches.

The video is only a few minutes long. I can (practically) guarantee you it will help you own storytelling abilities.

Kurt Vonnegut is a renown novelist who’s books include;¬†Slaughterhouse Five, Cat’s Cradle and Fates Worse Than Death.
