UNDERSTANDING THE TWO WAYS TO COMMUNICATE LIVE-READ STORIES
SMS LIVE-READ STORYTELLER TRAINING 2 OF 3
There are two different type or ways to story tell. The first is simply "Dramatic Reading." This means that you read the manuscript with emphasis, change of tone, and even voice, based upon the story and setting. This is most simple way to story-tell.
Roleplay storytelling is more advance. Roleplay Novels have no manuscript nor dialogue, but only the book description, and main characters. Your job will be to quickly digest the description, create an interactive scenario for you and the buyer, and invite them to share in the dialogue.
