Ron’s Tip of the Day Story Telling

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. This is an experiment in micro-blogging. Let me know how I’m doing. Today I am looking at Story Telling.

What Do I Need to be an Author?

I believe the first thing you need other than the call of God (if you’re a Christian) is an imagination. Believe it or not I think that everyone has an imagination.

What is an Imagination?

Imagination is ‘the process of forming mental images’. For example you can imagine a story. Children do this all the time.

Is Imagination the same as Story Telling?

Technically they are different. But you need imagination to tell a story. And story telling is basically the ability or act of writing down or vocally relating your imagined or true story. Again, as children you probably did this with your friends. For example, girls do it with their doll houses and boys might do it with their toy trucks, etc.

As an author you tap into your imagination and then you ‘tell’ the story. All the other stuff like research, grammar, spelling, etc. comes after. If you don’t have imagination, you won’t have a very exciting book.
