This pen was given to me by Twitter a couple years ago. I love it. It's probably my favorite piece of brand "swag" I've gotten.

Have you ever gotten a great piece of swag from a brand that you still hold on to?

Why is Storytelling So Powerful? (http://dustn.ws/2y1F6pw)

This article from The Atlantic explains the psychology of it:

> “Humans are inclined to see narratives where there are none because it can afford meaning to our lives, a form of existential problem-solving.”

This is why the best marketers, the most compelling social media influencers, and the most captivating celebrities are always great storytellers.

Boost Your Storytelling Skills with Bacon and Circuses (http://dustn.ws/2iBQ3LP)
Wati... what was that?

A great storyteller can get people to pay attention and hold that attention until the story is complete.

And just like any creative discipline, storytelling is like a muscle that you need to continually exercise.

Former SNL writer Tim Washer goes through a number of examples of how some simple 5-minute word exercises can help you become a better storyteller. But why do you need to be a better storyteller?

Because great storytelling is the essence of capturing and holding the undivided attention of your audience.

If you suck at storytelling, nobody will stick around to hear your story.

Sure, you might hook them with your snappy headline, or your stunning piece of visual eye-candy of an image. But will they actually read everything you've written?

If you're a great storyteller, continually flexing your creative muscles, you will have no problem with this.
