Everyone loves a good story, including your audience.

Marshmallows make a campfire story even better.

I don’t know what it is about a campfire, but it just screams “Tell me a story.”

Spooky or sweet, a focused group, hanging onto your next word is the best audience you will ever have.

My favorite campfire stories were on Silver Strand Beach in the 1970s where my family had a beach house. We lived there all summer and the scary stories were the best.

Even if they seemed completely unrealistic, sitting in the dark it was easy to imagine a giant monster, sea creature or cousin sneaking up behind you. Boo!

Use October to tell your story out loud. Here’s how:

  • October 5–7: Storytelling Weekend — Tell a story on your blog, in a press release or in a quote on your site. If you write a press release, don’t forget to post it to a service, like PRweb.com. And post the release to your web page in HTML format before you submit it via a newswire so you are the first source.
  • October 22: CAPS LOCK DAY – SHOUT OUT INTERNET STYLE. IT’S OK THIS ONE DAY A YEAR FOR TWEETS OR EMAILS. :)
