#FirstDraft60 Day 58 — The Importance of Props in Storytelling

Wednesday, October 28, 2015

#FirstDraft60 |
While in the written version of storytelling, we don’t necessarily have the same ability to use props as a visual prompt for viewers, they’re just as important to incorporate into our stories. Props can be used to great effect in most, if not all, of the ways mentioned in this video. So as we near the end of this challenge and either continue on with trying to get our first drafts complete, start new ones on November 1 for National Novel Writing Month, or enter into the revision phase on our completed manuscripts, think about (and make lists of) the props you’ve used in your story that you can make better use of—or objects you can add to create more layers of nuance to your story.
