This week we explore story and symphony. The idea came from Daniel H. Pink’s book A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainer’s Will Rule the Future. Pink writes:
“Symphony, as I call this aptitude, is the ability to put together the pieces. It is the capacity to synthesize rather than to analyze; to see relationships between seemingly unrelated fields; to detect broad patterns rather than to deliver specifc answers; and to invent something new by combining elements nobody else thought to pair.”
Indeed, how we put the pieces together is what makes our stories unique. The more pieces you acquire the more options you have to use in your writing. I find comedy to be more difficult to write than tragedy. So today I thought it would be good to add to our comedy toolbox.
