A good story moves us

A good story moves us

A good story can make us laugh or cry, our bodies can tense with a dramatic horror movie, or we are flooded with relief when the hero comes to the rescue. This experience is called transportation.

Transportation allows us to experience a story's movement through its characters. The characters' struggles and their rewards become our own.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE SAME ARTICLE

"Metaphor" means "to transfer." Like stories, metaphors subconsciously encode complex ideas.

The same parts of our brain we use to smell or to wave also help us understand the words we use to describe those experiences.

Stories are like instruction manuals that explain how we move from one state of being to another.

Good stories catch your attention, connects you by drawing you in and move you to action. Stories that don't capture your attention will fail to deliver their message.
