Story Brainstorming Infographic

Story Brainstorming Infographic

I found the coolest infographic for brainstorming stories when you have no idea at all what you want to write about.

All you have to do is stare at it for a while, let your eyes wander over it at random, and soon stuff starts appearing in your mind. Events, images, characters, and so on.

In fact, I might even make one of my own and change some stuff around since this is nothing but a glorified flowchart crossed with mindmapping-like reasoning.

It is called "All the Stories in the World," but it isn't. It's just some selective prompts to all the stories in the world from the mind of the person who did this infographic (Wendy MacNaughton).

You can see where this came from at the PDF article below, which is an interview in Print magazine (October 2013) with creative design marketer, Stanley Hainsworth.

Telling Tales

Incidentally, I decided to look further into his company, Tether, because of his interview with Robert Scoble below.

Stanley Hainsworth has some weird-ass hair and I'm sure there's a story there, but that's one I think I'll pass on.

Adam,

That's not the same person. Or did you have a different reason for posting that?

Stanley Hainsworth did write a book called Idea-ology: The Designer's Journey: Turning Ideas into Inspired Designs. And it looks pretty good.

But his visual style is totally different than the amateur snapshots on the blog.

Ditto re Wendy MacNaughton, the illustrator who did the infographic. Totally different visual universe.

Totally random thought search in my mind.

I am quite close with certain elements in the home school movement.

We are attempting to find an attorney who is willing to fall on his future financial sword, or, independently wealthy enough to raise certain aspects concerning - "taxation" - "'property tax based funding of education" - equity issues - and many more critical Constitutional issues.

In my conversations with folks in the home school movement, there are substantial issues that they de minmus have standing.

Conceptually, the concept of "image-ing" does not exist in the public sector.

I am writing an article about this aspect.

Just a coincidence...lol

Yep...

I have been working with this "semantic conditioning" on a regular basis.

Fascinating psychological semantics...

The tax issues aside, I am more concerned with the laws that effectively compel those without sufficient means to deliver their youngsters to persons who will destroy their ability to think critically.

I have an emotional aversion to complusion in general. Do you mean that you would be comfortable with compelling parents to deliver their children to persons that followed an 'approved' curriculum?

not so. The parents are the ones responsible for the welfare of their children. Also the welfare of their children is a major item of concern to right thinking parents. Hence, it is up to them where their children are schooled and in what they are schooled.

For a while I home schooled my children to make sure they learned reading, writing and arithmetic right and proper. They did.

Later on I sent them to private high schools. It cost me a bundle but it was right for my children.
