NaBloPoMo: Week One successfully completed

November 8, 2007 Comments Off on NaBloPoMo: Week One successfully completed

November is the month in which you post something to your blog every day, in accordance with the National Blog Posting Month challenge. So far I am 7-for-7 and feeling pretty good about that.

Two links that have been invaluable in helping me to write are:

A Formula For Telling a Good Story which suggests breaking the story into 6 parts:

  1. Who is involved
  2. What the action was
  3. Where you are (described actively)
  4. Conflict: the bulk of the story including the importance of the story, what happened and the action you too to resolve it
  5. Resolution
  6. Tag: the aftermath of the resolution, the big finish of the story

and Nail Your Next Presentation with these Classic Principles of Public Speaking that draws on the techniques of classical Greek orators:

  1. Exordium or gaining the sympathy of your listeners
  2. Narratio a narrative outline of the issue at hand
  3. Refutatio refuting the counter arguments
  4. Peroratio your final appeal

What’s this?
