storyteller’s delight (but beware)

Just a link today but it’s pretty nearly the best link ever (!) for anyone who is interested in storytelling.  If you write stories, or if you enjoy reading/watching/looking at  stories written by others, visit the Periodic Table of Storytelling, and have more fun than a barrel of cartoonists who have met their deadlines.

Clicking on any of the table entries will take you to the entry on that subject on TV Tropes, another great site for lovers of stories.  As always, beware of a really great link– the Periodic Table of Storytelling is addictive, and will keep you away from your own work if you let it.

My highest recommendation.  I am thinking of buying the poster.

    So, with fresh brewed coffee and Bailey’s close at hand, I just wasted three and a half remarkably entertaining hours digging around in this Table, with every intention of eventually diving back in, and I’m not even a writer!

    Highly recommended to every literate person online. If you write this thing is mandatory equipment, IMO

    TV Tropes is brilliant in general, and this table is a great way to access it. When you think of what Vannevar Bush predicted when he invented the idea of hypertext– this is exactly what he was talking about. Of course, I don’t think he was thinking of applying the concept to narrative analysis of popular culture …
