BOOK EXCERPT:

This guide reveals how writers can utilize cognitive storytelling strategies to craft stories that ignite readers’ brains and captivate them through each plot element. Imagine knowing what the brain craves from every tale it encounters, what fuels the success of any great story, and what keeps readers transfixed. Wired for Story reveals these cognitive secrets—and it’s a game-changer for anyone who has ever set pen to paper. The vast majority of writing advice focuses on “writing well” as if it were the same as telling a great story. This is exactly where many aspiring writers fail—they strive for beautiful metaphors, authentic dialogue, and interesting characters, losing sight of the one thing that every engaging story must do: ignite the brain’s hardwired desire to learn what happens next. When writers tap into the evolutionary purpose of story and electrify our curiosity, it triggers a delicious dopamine rush that tells us to pay attention. Without it, even the most perfect prose won’t hold anyone’s interest. Backed by recent breakthroughs in neuroscience as well as examples from novels, screenplays, and short stories, Wired for Story offers a revolutionary look at story as the brain experiences it. Each chapter zeroes in on an aspect of the brain, its corresponding revelation about story, and the way to apply it to your storytelling right now.

BOOK EXCERPT:

A step-by-step guide to using the brain's hardwired desire for story to achieve any goal, whether it's successfully pitching a product, saving the planet, or convincing your kids not to text and drive, from the author of Wired for Story. Story isn't just one way to persuade, it's the way. It's built into the architecture of the brain, and has been since early humans gathered around the campfire, trying to figure out if that rustling in the bushes really was a lion. But to fully wield the power of story at will, you must first understand how story is working in your brain--not metaphorically, but biologically. In Story or Die, author, speaker, and story coach Lisa Cron decodes the power of story, examining how story and the brain evolved in tandem; why well-told stories were, and continue to be, key to our survival; and what grabs us in a good story. (It's very different from what we think.) She then takes readers, step by step, through the process of creating their own story--a story with the power to call even the most challenging audience, no matter their tribe, to action. Along the way, Cron explains what your brain craves in a story, how to pinpoint your audience's hidden resistance, and why all roads lead to an aha moment. In doing so, she teaches you how to enthrall, persuade, promote, educate, inspire, and most important, better understand yourself and every decision you make.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The compelling, groundbreaking guide to creative writing that reveals how the brain responds to storytelling Stories shape who we are. They drive us to act out our dreams and ambitions and mold our beliefs. Storytelling is an essential part of what makes us human. So, how do master storytellers compel us? In The Science of Storytelling, award-winning writer and acclaimed teacher of creative writing Will Storr applies dazzling psychological research and cutting-edge neuroscience to our myths and archetypes to show how we can write better stories, revealing, among other things, how storytellers—and also our brains—create worlds by being attuned to moments of unexpected change. Will Storr’s superbly chosen examples range from Harry Potter to Jane Austen to Alice Walker, Greek drama to Russian novels to Native American folk tales, King Lear to Breaking Bad to children’s stories. With sections such as “The Dramatic Question,” “Creating a World,” and “Plot, Endings, and Meaning,” as well as a practical, step-by-step appendix dedicated to “The Sacred Flaw Approach,” The Science of Storytelling reveals just what makes stories work, placing it alongside such creative writing classics as John Yorke’s Into the Woods: A Five-Act Journey into Story and Lajos Egri’s The Art of Dramatic Writing. Enlightening and empowering, The Science of Storytelling is destined to become an invaluable resource for writers of all stripes, whether novelist, screenwriter, playwright, or writer of creative or traditional nonfiction.
