    What are the standard tools that one would find in a Storyteller's repertoire?

    For e.g., Flashback. I love how a storyteller converts a straightforward predictable story into layers of time unfolding in random order, making sure that it's an interesting journey to even the most predictable destination. So what all other tools would a storyteller use for converting a story to an onion? big_smile

    A numero uno must before "becoming" a writing storyteller would be to read the little white book--it's called Strunk & White's Elements of Style. This small 185 page book will give you all of the pointers, tips and style advice you will need to become a better writer. And if storytelling is your niche--buy it--and never let it go. Cheers and good luck on your future writing endeavours.

    * Knowing the story well.
    * Being able to invest detail that helps others visualize the story.

    Greek myths have repeated phrases like "grey eyed Athena" that were standard descriptions and longer descriptions that could get the story-teller something to say for 30 seconds while trying to remember what happened next.
