Prompt: What is the one skill you see in other bloggers that you wish you had?
Some people- not just bloggers- have this amazing talent of turning any mundane thing into a story. Not just a story, a Story.
I don’t know how they do it! It’s amazing! I find myself retelling the most fantastic events- things that happen that are basically stories (with the whole arc thing, ect) that don’t even need editing- in the most flat, bland, boring way….
Like this: Once, we had a dog, and it ate a rock, and died.
THIS IS A TRUE STORY PEOPLE! A truly excellent story that requires little to no embellishment or exaggeration. It has drama, tragedy, comedy… and yet, I have never successfully delivered it. In fact, my repeatedly poor delivery has become somewhat of a “tag” among my friends group. Whenever someone tells a story that falls flat, another will inevitably chime in- “and then I ate a rock and died.”
So, all you talented tale-tellers, tell me your secrets!
