Screenwriters & Authors: I learned some of the most powerful insights on how stories work from Jen Grisanti Consultancy!

Here are some key things that took me YEARS to learn, observe, process, then execute, especially for TV series stories. (You might be smarter & faster than me!) LOL

But now that I've got 'em... I clearly see them in pretty much EVERY great story I watch onscreen, or read in books!

Even more important: Now all MY storytelling BEGINS with these seeds of GREATNESS!

(From Jen's post today): STORY TIP - My new story product, FINDING STORY is coming soon. Here is one of the story points that we will be exploring.

Here are some advertising in fecebook tips
1: Introduce yourself. I have no idea who you are. I have no idea why you are in my timeline. Tell me who you are and why you are targeting me
2:tell me what your product and/or service is without presuming that anybody knows who you are or what you do
3: where is your business located? Do you have a location? Are you a store, service, a phone number or a website? Are you geographically accessible?
4:how do you know this is going to your targeted customers? Hint: you don’t.
This is more annoying and infuriating and makes me want to go out and hunt down your quietest competitor.
Have a nice day

MONTREUX JAZZ FESTIVAL - Chris and I planned on a trip to Montreux in 2020 after a writing retreat. Due to COVID, we moved it to this year. Little did we know that the Montreux Jazz Festival was happening at the same time. While working out that morning at the stunning Fairmont Le Montreux Palace, we ran into John Legend at the gym. We were fortunate to see him perform at the jazz festival. He was phenomenal! Montreux is exquisite and breathtaking!
