Example text

You want to keep the natural storytelling style and system you already successfully use for all stories regardless of the source—because that is what already works for you. Don’t adjust you to fit the story, adjust (or select) stories to fit you. Storytelling is not acting. It is not about mimicking the performances of others. It is not about dramatic theatrics (unless they are natural and comfortable for you). You don’t worry about such things when telling your daily-event stories to friends and family members.

Seek out storytelling in your area and make a point of attending events as often as you can. You may know of librarians who tell stories, or it may take a bit of sleuthing to find them. It is particularly important to hear these storytellers, as their styles may differ from those of professional tellers. Professional or not, there is no substitute for being present when a fine tale is shared by a fine storyteller. After a time you will be able to spot the tellable tale very quickly and, just as quickly, know whether it is one you are interested in telling.

The structure may vary depending on the story type, but in the main, traditional tales depend on a strong plot and a good deal of action. Characters move the plot along and provide someone to cheer or to vilify. Sensory details are limited to the bare essentials in folk material for several reasons. Traditional stories come from specific cultures. Those within the culture didn’t need topographical details, or descriptions of clothing and such. The shared knowledge of the community made these unnecessary.
