I’m working on creating a storytelling grid that can help map the field of things named storytelling. If you’re curious, please read post I & post II and don’t miss the interesting comments. At the same time I’d like to present a question to story practitioners in order to create a survey and compare your answers to answers given by storytellers, most of them with several thousands of performances/events attached to their belt.
Answering this question will require about 5-10 min. of your precious time and I thank you in advance for taking part in this search.
Question: What skills, attributes and components make up the ability of a story practitioner?
(Just to give you an example from storytellers’ answers, things like intention, communication skills, sense of story, listening skills, visual intelligence etc. were mentioned)
The list can be long as the way from here to the moon. What say you?
