Storytelling is what makes a great novel

Never Say Impossible Radio (NSI) Inteviews Cortina Jackson Author of “On Earth As It IS In Hell” Click here to listen to the interview   Storytelling is the key Storytelling is as old as humanity.  Before we had tools to write and make symbols, we drew pictures on the walls of caves.  The very first book a baby interacts with is a picture book that tells a story.  Nothing is more informative, engaging, educational and entertaining than a good story.  Everyone loves a story.  Storytelling has always been our first form of communication, whether it is delivered with drawings, the spoken word, or the written word.  The Bible, whether it is the Old Testament or the New Testament is a series of stories with deep religious and moral meanings.  It is the oldest storybook in the world that never gets boring or worn-out.  The stories within the Bible are often used as the backbone of modern fiction and thrillers.  The battle between good and evil and heaven and hell will always stimulate our thoughts, fantasies, and above all our fears. Can you turn an idea into a book using storytelling? We have all heard that most people have at least one good book inside their heads.  However, do you have what it takes to tap into your own personal lifes experiences, delve deep within your imagination and build a fictional book?  Have you ever wondered how it was done and if you could create a book that tells such a great story that the reader does not want to put it down?  Let us briefly walk through the basic steps of...

Spiritual growth after extreme adversity

Dancing On Our Disabilities Radio Interviews James Perdue Author of One More Play & Preserve Past your Paralysis Click here to listen to James Perdue   Spiritual growth after extreme adversity or post-traumatic growth can improve the mental state for some individuals after experiencing unusual shocking adversity.  We have all read about people who have undergone extreme tragedy but somehow managed to overcome permanent psychological damage. I often refer to these people as resilient.  They have the ability to move beyond simply surviving or existing after a devastating experience.  They go on to rebuild their lives with a renewed spiritual strength.  Certain individuals actually experience a period of emotional growth.  They are able to move beyond the disappointment and pain and transition through the depression, which inevitably follows, and rebuild their entire life.  They create a new norm and renewed passion. Spiritual growth can occur when an individual has suffered beyond what is considered normal adversities.  We often learn from those survivors about positive attitude changes and the renewed appreciation and gratitude for life in its simplest form.  I am speaking about life-threatening illnesses, combat and war experiences, crime victims, abuse, accidents, and natural disasters resulting in loss of family and loved ones.  Some circumstances are so devastating that they are almost unthinkable for most of us to imagine. We have all heard the old saying, “don’t sweat the small stuff” and unanimously agree that it is a healthy mindset.  Why worry over all kinds of insignificant things which actually have very little meaning in the scheme of life.  It is the bigger picture that counts and the ability...

Are you a secret author?

Never Say Impossible Radio Interviews author Barbara Ehrentreu Are you an author or do you just wish you could become one? I had an interesting conversation with a fiction author this week by the name of Barbara Ehrentreu. Our conversation brought me back to my first journalistic endeavor and attempt to be an author. It’s been said that everyone has at least one book buried deep within their mind.  I think that is true.  However, I think most people have a reason why they never get around to write any kind of book.  If I tell the truth, for years I was one of those people.  I would read other people’s work and become intimidated thinking I would never be able to be a serious author.  Fear of failure would show up and stop me in my tracks.  I managed to become distracted or way too busy to devote the time and effort to completing the book.  Honestly, when I finally decided to write seriously, it took a total of five years for me to focus and write and complete my first book. I was shocked to find that it was actually fun at times.  I would be a liar if I did not say that it was a real challenge as well.  When all is said and done, any creative work builds self-esteem, and writing can really help you understand your mission in life.  I do not think there is a person in the world that does not enjoy a good movie. However, all movies are drafted from books or screenplays.  So in actuality, the text came first....

Are you a master Communicator?
