Story News: Experts have warned that the stories children tell are almost always boring, long winded and without any kind of satisfactory conclusion.

β€œWhen children tell adults anecdotes about their lives, they often start out well,” said Dr. Robert McKee of the Institute of Linguistic Studies in Southern California.

β€œBut all too quickly the child loses any sense of pace or narrative structure. What began as a promising story about the time they had an ice cream in the park typically falls down flat during the middle of the second act.”

β€œAll the tension and any potential for a character arc is gone – the audience becomes bored and restless, then the child will inevitably – and abruptly – stop the story with some kind of unsatisfactory conclusion such as ‘and I really liked it’.”

“Children really need to master their sense of dramatic structure before boring adults with trite observations about their unremarkable little lives.”
