Techniques for Engaging Readers and Successfully Navigating the Writing and Publishing Processes
Chapter 3: Storytelling tools
In this chapter I describe storytelling tools. Storytelling tools complement story structure by moving the story from one act to the next, making characters three dimensional actors instead of cardboard cut-outs, creating tension and drama, and help provide the reader with release. I focus on four storytelling tools that I think are especially appropriate for academic writing, and that are easy to incorporate: the human face, motion and pacing, showing and telling; and making your writing conversational.
