Best of the Week 3

Best of the Week 3

This week we take a look at simplifying your stories, the storied history of the tabloid and Clairvius Narcisse, Haiti’s most famous Zombie.

The Three Questions of Storytelling

Storytelling is full of different frameworks, and it’s arguable as to whether any of them will turn a crappy tale into something worth reading; however, it’s pretty safe to say that these are three questions that need to be answered before you even think about starting your story.

Simplify Your Stories

I don’t think this point can be said enough.

Stop Trying To Please Everyone

On the importance of realizing that it’s OK that not everyone is going to like what you do.

History of the Tabloid

I really liked this one because of the site it links to which gives you as good an explanation of the history of the tabloid as I’ve ever seen.

On The Sublime And Beautiful

Edward Burke’s look at how newspapers are going to replace books, circa 1902.

Increases In Newspaper Advertising

Everything in media is cyclical. As advertisers now are shifting from newspapers to the web, at one point they shifted just as readily from older forms of advertising to the newspaper.

The Story of Zombification

A clear, concise explanation of the process of zombification. We’re talking about Haitian Zombies not Romero’s brain-eaters.

Clairvius Narcisse

Clairvius Narcisse is one of the most famous Haitian “zombies.” Learn a bit more about this life, his death and his, er, undeath.

Bokors

Wondering who is responsible for all those crazy Haitian Zombies running around? Meet the Bokor. Which, now that I think about it, would be a great title for a movie.
