But this morning, I was checking my Facebook when I saw that my brother Chris (The Smits Brothers) had posted a video to his page. I don't always watch videos that he posts - he's a professional trainer and trains supermodels and Olympic class athletes. Most of his videos have to do with training and athletics, 90% of which I could NEVER even dream of doing (no snowboarding for me!) I spend most of my day BIC (butt in chair). I have the physique to go along with it. But that's another story...
Good story, in my opinion, does three things (and I learned this from Pulitzer prize winner Jacqui Bananszynski) :
- It informs people
It entertains people
and it connects people
So why am I sharing this video? Because it is an example of "good story." See if you can find how this story accomplishes all three of those things and apply those principles to your writing. You can write "good story."
