How to avoid telling boring stories

Donor Power Blog

Technorati Tag: story. From Katya's Nonprofit Marketing Blog: Are your nonprofit's stories winners or snoozers? If the stories you're telling are compilations of facts, Katya points out, you're just spreading around "emotional Novocain.". Real stories always contain: Character. Desire. Conflict. That's exactly what you'd learn in a fiction-writing or screenwriting class. Stories are stories no matter where they are. And when they're good, they're irresistibly compelling. Give it a try.

To Tweet or To Blog? Yet ANOTHER question.
