Storytelling tip #1: Start in the middle

storytelling quotes

Grab the attention of your audience by jumping into the story. A slow buildup is boring and expected. “The house was eerily still and quiet that afternoon…” is much better than “Hi, I’m really happy to be here today… blah blah blah”.

Try it for yourself, start in the middle. You can always introduce your topic later.
