22 Storytelling Resources And How To Turn Your Personal Life Into Engaging Content For Your Google Plus Audience!
Day 25th - The 31 Days G+ Engagement Challenge!

Stop looking for content in the wrong the places or even in the right places, why stressing, and getting stop by your mental  #writersblock  if all the content you need is there right in front of your eyes.

Brainstorming still crucial, but embracing your daily personal stories to craft content ideas for your #googlepluspage  can give you a great jump start on your writing, and will also save you a huge amount of time.

You gotta remember that storytelling isn't an art, I know you heard that everywhere, If you really want to be a master on writing you need to learn the way the pros tell stories.

This is what I think about that: It's All CRAP!

Sorry my French, but is true

....you already a master on telling stories, you do it all time when you tell your friends or family what you did last week, or about that car crash you saw the other day, or about how your little baby surprise you by dancing the #gangnamstyle  song. The best stories are those told in a very personal, in your own words type of way. When you just telling your personal to other people feel connected, they are learning more about you... not just about your life but about your narrative style.

The key principal here is to be Personal!

Fake personalities are easy perceived, and even if you become good at it, it will take you some time to get use to, making brainstorming a nightmare.

So, another key factor is Originality!

Now what you need to do is adapt your #story  so it appeals your audience. When I say adapt I don't to change your style, I meant to dig out the lessons your audience should be getting from it.


*******

PRO TIP: An excellent way to adapt your personal story for your audience is to ask yourself: "What can they learn about (your niche) from (your story)?"

Usually, by answering this can rapidly give you ideas on what to tell your readers or followers.
