Dreams are stories we have yet to understand. The subconscious has a way of testing our emotions and fears, hypothetical situations our brains want us to be ready for. What if went to school and didn't realize that we were naked until you were sitting in class? What if there was something lurking in the shadows of our home, and as it drew closer, you realized you couldn't move?
I believe it's for this reason that…

Another storytelling concept to wrap our minds around is called Suspended Disbelief. The Dictionary says: "It's a willingness to suspend one's critical faculties and believe the unbelievable; the sacrifice of realism and logic for the sake of enjoyment."
Wikipedia says: "The term was coined in 1817 by the poet and philosopher Samuel Taylor Coleridge, who suggested that if a writer could infuse a 'human interest and a semblance of truth' into a fantastic tale…"

In Stephen King's classic book, On Writing, which I highly recommend, he says that writing is telepathy, and I think he's right. There's a magic that happens when words are transported across space and time and into a reader's mind, especially when the words help the person experience something they wouldn't be able to in their everyday lives.
Research shows that when we read we're actually experiencing the story on a neurological level as though we're the character themselve...s, much like a dream.
Of course, not all writing accomplishes this sleight of hand to the same degree. Having your reader…

It must have been a lot of work being the tribal elder who had to remember all those stories and enact them in front of an entertainment-starved crowd. He had to get it right, deliver the scenes and a storyline in a way that pleased his audience.
There was an art to it.
That's why it's funny when people find out that you write, that you're a storyteller, and they want to offer ideas.
"You're writing a book? Oh, I have a great idea for a story."
Coming up with the idea is the ...easy part. It's kind of like saying, I have an idea about building a house. If you want to build a house, I'm your guy. I have all kinds of ideas.
