Touch Your Audience With Stories
As daily events happen and you're on the lookout for stories, you'll spot potential gems you could use. You need to save the story ideas. Write them down. Or if you're driving, put them on tape or on a digital voice recorder. You may have power steering and power brakes. A micro-recorder is your power memory! Later, spend some time developing each story. Tear it in small segments and look for unusual and humorous twists. What are the funny perspectives? What could be learned from this situation? Reflect on the story just before you drop off to sleep and again right after you wake up. Creative ideas tend to pop into your head during those times.
