Key strategies for storytelling:

  • Start with the person’s name. If it’s a group of people you can start with “Hey guys…”
  • Tell them that you have a story to tell then wait and see if they ask to hear it. You could say “So Michelle the scariest thing happened to me when I was hiking in the White Mountains this week…”

 

Adjectives to use:

  • The weirdest thing happened
  • The funniest thing happened
  • The scariest thing happened
  • The most bizarre thing happened
