The CMI Summit focuses on how visual storytelling may be used as a vital communication tool. It focuses on how even the most ordinary events may be exploited to make a powerful point. The summit’s top recommendations include:
- The visual medium is the strongest. We are born with the ability to see things, people, and things that others aren’t. We have the eyes, the brain, and the hands to convey what we want to say. The only limit is what you want to say. The ability of the user to turn a thing into a metaphor, a topic into an icon, and information into experience is the power of the visual. It can be conveyed in a single sentence or a paragraph, and it can say what you want to say in a few sentences.
- Keep your images to a minimum. Our evolution is the only reason most of us have images in our brains. In times where technology has made everything seem small, keep your images big. The ability to represent something in your head as an image helps communicate its meaning in a few words. If you use just a couple of words for the job, you will be able to say everything you want to say in just a few sentences.
- Use your words for impact. The only way you will get people to read your story is if you make it impactful. You don’t need to use fancy words to do this. Use your words to make them memorable. Write like you were talking to someone, not a writer who thinks he’s a novelist.
What makes a difference is how you communicate. It’s all about power and how you project it. You can use the visual to communicate with others by using words or images. You can communicate with your words through images, or you can communicate with your images through words. There is no limit on the amount of meaning you may convey with your words, and your images will just add to it.
It’s all about communicating; the difference between a good story and a great story is how your character expresses their feelings through their words. And only the two protagonists in a story show their meaning. The antagonist’s sole objective is to protect the protagonist from realizing their meaning. On the other hand, the meaning is what the reader gets from their understanding of the story. The reader has the choice of reading or not reading the story.
It’s only a matter of removing the information that your readers want from your story before posting it. All you have to do is put out what you want them to read if you want them to read your story.
Writing a great story is dependent on the reader’s choice. It’s a matter of how you communicate what you want them to know through your story. The reader can choose to read your story or choose to skip it.
You can use your story to give out information. The reader can choose to learn something through reading your story.
All you have to do is be yourself and convey your character’s wants through their story. The reader will understand whatever you put out through their character. It’s not always clear what your character is trying to say at first, but as the story unfolds, you’ll be able to figure out what they’re trying to say.
Write the story you would want to read. Then the reader will understand it through your character.
The difference is in the point of view of your character. The reader sees through the eyes of your character. The story will not be read if your character tries to block the reader’s view. You must enable your character to tell their own story as a writer. That is the plot of the story.
Go ahead and write a story about a boy and girl getting married, a man going on a date, and so on; it’s your story. Just bear this in mind. It’s critical to be true to your character’s perspective. The reader will recognize it through your character. Make no effort to turn your story into something it is not.
Write a story based on your character’s point of view. Don’t write a story based on what you want it to be.
