Oral story telling is the oldest form of communication.
It has existed since the beginning of time.
How do you get the ideas out of your head?
The purpose of this guide is to help bring the creative spark within you to life.
You don't need a lot of money to get an idea out there.
You just need a creative idea, along with some hardwork and dedication.
HOW TO GET STARTED?
The most important first step is to get your thoughts out of your subconscious mind.
Find a quiet space where you can sit and think without being distracted.
Maybe listen to some creative music to get inspired.
And then speak your mind. Don't over think it.
The first attempt might not be good. It might be terrible. But at least you're getting your ideas out.
You can always record or write a better version later.
The important thing is just to experiment with different methods and see what works best for you.
SPEAK INTO WHAT?
That's up to you. You can use your phone.
More people have phones than computers. And most phones come with inbuilt audio/video recording software.
Though we would recommend a laptop and a webcam.
More details below.
We would recommend audio recording instead of video recording for people just starting out.
This is easier because you don't have to worry about how you look everytime you want to get an idea recorded.
It is possible to record an audio file and post it straight to a website without any editing or frills.
You don't need an expensive piece of equipment to get your thoughts out to the world.
The truth has power. Even those without a lot of money or fame can communicate an important message.
There are many low cost/free options available today.
More details below.
DISCLAIMER: We're not saying the items below are the only content available.
This is just a small collection of products that have been recommended to us.
Many people today just record their thoughts straight to an app.
Or they make a video on their phone and then post it on an app or website.
There are also free apps you can record with.
