Story News: Experts have warned that the stories children tell are almost always boring, long winded and without any kind of satisfactory conclusion.
â€śBut 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.â€ť
â€śAll the tension and any potential for a character arc is gone – the audience becomes bored and restless, then the child will inevitably â€“ and abruptly â€“ 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.â€ť
