For effective storytelling, take some time to prepare, establish conflict and use a combination of delivery elements. This helps keep the audience connected to the story.
Take time to read the story to fully visualize and connect with the characters and the setting. Preparation also helps in deciding the right mood to create in the story.
Use appropriate delivery methods, such as gestures, eye contact and voice variation. Make it visual through descriptions using words, videos or sounds to make the experience feel realistic and entertaining.
Having a conflict in the story that the main character tries to overcome helps in keeping the audience engaged. Small conflicts at various points of the story help support the main conflict.
