Plotting the Shape of Your Stories with Kurt Vonnegut

Stories help others connect to you and your work, your business, and what’s important to you. Engaging stories share commonalities, and one of the best explanations I’ve heard is from Kurt Vonnegut. It’s tongue-in-cheek, but when I write, I like to ask how storytelling for myself or clients would show up on his axis of the shape of stories. It’s actually a helpful visualization tool, as long as my “internal editor” doesn’t get in the way.
