Wednesday links: Becoming a better storyteller

I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.

  1. Five Ways Television Can Help Us Become Better Storytellers, from Writer Unboxed: Telling the story in the best way possible is the goal of any writer, regardless of their narrative form. Here, Writer Unboxed discusses how watching TV can help you develop your storytelling skills. Excerpt: “What these shows have in common is their ability to entertain, and we can learn a lot about writing—and our writing careers—from studying them. In an effort to keep this post from being the length of a novel, I’ve focused on a showrunner, two shows, and commercial breaks to provide examples of how television can inform the way authors write and share stories.”
