“People have forgotten how to tell a story.” – Steven Spielberg
As Jane wrote, “It may seem to address a simplistic question, but I must agree with Steven Spielberg. . .So I hope you won’t be too proud to remind yourself what storytelling is all about.”
In reading (and re-reading) the article, my thoughts crystalized around what most stories lack, a precarious flaw that can cripple a story’s magic and potential.
No space for imagination.
Good editors know this well.
