Słowa towarzyszą nam od dzieciństwa. Nadajemy nazwy wszystkiemu, co nas otacza; opowiadamy o wszystkim, co dla nas ważne. Gdy korzystamy z wyszukiwarki internetowej, wpisujemy w jej okno pożądane frazy. I choćby nie wiadomo jak wyznawcy kultury obrazkowej zaklinali rzeczywistość, to słowa mają moc. Zmieniają świat, wpływają na czytelników i klientów.
Niezależnie od tego, czy tworzysz opowiadanie, bloga, tekst naukowy, e-mail marketingowy czy slogan reklamowy — jesteś pisarzem. Chcesz podzielić się z czytelnikiem swoimi przemyśleniami, rozbawić go lub wzruszyć. Chcesz, by czytelnik Cię zrozumiał, ale czy wiesz, jak do niego dotrzeć? Które słowa wybrać, a których się pozbyć? Marzysz o tym, by Twój tekst czytało się tak, jak ogląda się przygody Jamesa Bonda? Chciałbyś budować napięcie jak Agatha Christie? Magiczną moc opowieści dostrzegają dziś nie tylko literaci i reżyserzy, lecz również twórcy tekstów reklamowych i internetowych, ponieważ storytelling buduje świadomość marki. Jeśli chcesz nauczyć się go stosować, trudno o lepszych mistrzów storytellingu niż wielcy pisarze. Możesz czerpać garściami z ich doświadczenia, pod warunkiem, że zamiast się zastanawiać: „Co autor miał na myśli?”, zapytasz: „Jak on to zrobił?”. Dzięki pisarskim technikom i stylistycznym sztuczkom, które poznasz w tej książce, Twój tekst zabłyśnie jak za dotknięciem czarodziejskiej różdżki.
