Hideous monsters and fountains of blood might seem like a good place to start, but as horror author H.P. Lovecraft wrote, “The oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.” Writers harness that fear not by revealing horrors, but by leaving the audience hanging in a state of suspense.

How Tiger Got His Stripes (Animated Stories for Kids)
 
08:55
This humorous folktale from Vietnam, retold by Rob Cleveland, tells the story of Tiger, who was once the proudest animal of the jungle. He was even prouder than the peacock. Of course what Tiger was most proud of was his beautiful golden coat. But unfortunately for Tiger, he did not have wisdom and was jealous that only Man seemed to possess it. So Tiger approached Man and demanded that he give Tiger his wisdom. Man then uses his wisdom to outsmart Tiger when he finds himself tied to a tree with a rope. While trying to escape, Tiger burns his coat on the rope, leaving permanent stripes on his beautiful golden coat. This wisdom story will teach readers the importance of courage, caring and resourcefulness.

This story provides another classic African folktale about the trickster spider Anansí. First off, it is a custom that whenever a guest arrives at mealtime that the host share his or her food with the guest, whether the visitor is invited or shows up uninvited. In this folktale, Anansí learns that Turtle is coming over and that he must share his dinner with Turtle. Being the trickster that he is, Anansí figures out a way to trick Turtle so that he can keep all of the food for himself.

How to write an award-winning bestselling first novel | Nathan Filer | TEDxYouth@Bath
 
14:20
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Or at least be happier whilst trying! This is Nathan's guide to novel writing in 7 easy (ish!) steps. Nathan won the Costa Book Prize in 2013 with his debut novel, The Shock Of The Fall. It has been translated into 27 languages. Nathan worked part time as a mental health nurse in Bristol and his book’s narrator is a 19 year old boy with schizophrenia. He graduated from Bath Spa University in 2010 with an MA in Creative Writing and is now a lecturer in Creative Writing at the University. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

The 48 Laws of Power (Animated)
 
29:19
Get 2 FREE Audiobooks of Your Choice on Audible | http://amzn.to/2b9GBJr I crafted this summary of the 48 Laws of Power in anger. It is the end result of 2 years of animating all chapters condensed for your viewing pleasure. Surely, you've heard the phrase "Hate the game, not the player." I'm exposing the game and the players for you. Being honest and speaking the truth has been a punishing and not at all rewarding experience, since most people will always shoot the messenger. I aim to raise awareness and arm the clueless for self-protection. I am not advocating becoming a manipulating and ruthless sociopath. I can't respect those who don't understand the difference. It's a self-improvement book, not the work of the devil. Robert Greene is all about intense realism. Seeing things for what they are, whether you like the truth or not. Hopefully you'll find the video helpful, learn from it and share it with others. I've received plenty of messages from good people claiming it changed their lives for the better. Don't let others use and abuse you. Don't live in a fantasy land. Be cautious. Read this book or don't.

Tricking Expectancy for Better Fiction Writing
 
10:08
http://creativewritingtutorials.blogspot.com/ Show notes: Playing with where your reader thinks the story is going. If you watched a few of my tutorials you will know that I'm writing for fiction. Stop and ask yourself, where does the reader think this story is going. You have a future scene and need to do some setting up in previous scene. Your character is the last scene is going to fall from a bridge so your plot objective is to get your character to the bridge (so he can fall off!) What you can do is give a reason for him going to the bridge that has nothing to do with the outcome. He could go there to meet someone. So the reader is expecting the story to play out along the lines of the two character's meeting. The second character never shows but the first does fall off the bridge. The reader is surprised the story took that direction but it is still effective because the events of the story still lead to the outcome even if it was not the implied outcome. This is very effective because life is often if not always like this to some degree. If you let the story evolve this type of plot twisting can occur on it's own because as the story changes some of the earlier story will elude the reader's expectation. In the course of watching my lessons, just watch them and let them sink in, they will have an effect. Food for thought. If you want your viewer to be sitting on the edge of their seat, trick expectancy. The reader will always try to guess where the story goes. We do this subconsciously. And when the story does not go as expected it adds to the suspense. If we know how the story will play out it diminishes our enjoyment. That's a big reason we only watch a movie once. Storytelling the veers off from expectancy effects people on a deep level. Creative writing/ storytelling tutorial for the multimedia age. The writing strategies offered in these tutorials can also be applied to podcasting, film work, storyboarding, cartooning, etc. but they are still very much about writing. Writing is an important skill for most kinds of multimedia artists. These tutorials are offered for free to help promote my own story telling so please take a moment to see one of my videos at solomation.com. Thanks and I hope your writing goes well!

Writing A Book? Here's Why You Should Plan Your Novel

Are you writing a book and now you're unsure of what to do first? Maybe you're asking yourself, "What should I write about?" or you have an idea of what you want to write, but you have not worked out every single chapter or plot point. Planning your novel prior to beginning the writing process will help you to flesh out your ideas, characters, and even come up with new ideas. Writing a novel or non-fiction book can be pretty intimidating, however if you begin to write a book, research should definitely be a part of your process. Some people believe that research is only necessary if you are writing a non-fiction book, however that is untrue. Doing research for your book is a very necessary part of the process no matter the genre you write.

Biblical Series VIII: The Phenomenology of the Divine
 
02:40:46
In the next series of stories, the Biblical patriarch Abram (later: Abraham) enters into a covenant with God. The history of Israel proper begins with these stories. Abram heeds the call to adventure, journeys courageously away from his country and family into the foreign and unknown, encounters the disasters of nature and the tyranny of mankind and maintains his relationship with the God who has sent him forth. He becomes in this manner a light in the world, and a father of nations. How is this all to be understood? I am attempting in this lecture to determine precisely that. How are we, as modern people, to make sense of the idea of the God who reveals himself to a personality? How can we relate the details of the Abramic stories to our own lives, in the current world? In what frame of reference can these stories be seen to make sense, and to reveal their meaning?

How to Get Ideas for Stories
 
03:33
I talk about idea generation and my not so creative, creative process. My goal for this video is to encourage everyone to get out there and create even if they're not "creative" in the typical sense of the word. Anyone can create a good story and I want to prove that.

How to Write a Novel– Part 1: Week 3, "Introduction to Story Structure" | UBCx on edX | Course Video
 
01:15
Take this course on edX: https://www.edx.org/course/how-write-novel-part-1-plan-outline-ubcx-cw1-1x ↓ More info below. ↓ Follow on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/edX Follow on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/edxonline Follow on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/edxonline In this lesson, Nancy Lee discusses how external and internal story structures work together. About this course Have you always wanted to write a novel? Have you started a novel only to run out of steam halfway through? Led by international best-selling authors and professors from The University of British Columbia’s world-renowned Creative Writing MFA program, this is the first in a series of courses designed to take your novel from concept to completion. Outlining is a crucial step in the novel writing process, one that fuels creativity and prepares the writer to stay on track and avoid common pitfalls. Through hands-on weekly exercises with a focus on craft and process, as well as insights from the real-world practices of accomplished authors, this course explores the core elements of fiction writing necessary to build an outline. You will learn the fundamentals of character development, world-building and the basics of storytelling architecture. You'll work intensively on your own creative project and hone your outline through feedback and discussion with fellow writers. In the tradition of the UBC MFA program, this course draws on the work habits of established authors to help writers move quickly toward creating a blueprint for a successful draft. Whether you’re seeking literary fame or working on a project to share with family and friends, this course offers the tools and skills necessary to plan a novel others will be excited to read. The course is recommended for professional and aspiring writers, writing groups, participants in NaNoWriMo, teachers and anyone who has ever dreamed of writing a novel. FAQ Do I need to have started a novel to take this course? No. However, you should have one or more novel ideas that you wish to work on during this course. We will ask you to start developing your idea right away. What if I’m in the middle of a novel? If you have already started a novel, or are having issues with a partially finished manuscript without an outline, this course can help you clarify your intentions and work out structural issues. We believe the process of outlining helps writers understand a work in progress in a way that simply ‘writing through’ cannot. Is this course related to an existing UBC writing class? This is an entirely new course, created by instructors with years of experience teaching the art of fiction writing to undergraduate and graduate university students as well as members of the community. What are the other courses in the series? How to Write a Novel – Part 2: Writing the Draft will provide an essential fiction craft toolbox for writers struggling with the common hurdles of first drafts. How to Write a Novel – Part 3: Edit and Revise, is in the early stages of development. When it is launched, it will be suitable for students who have completed a full draft of their novel.
