I’ve been meaning to share this clip for a while; it's the first in a series of videos called Kid History. A lot of you have probably seen them, but if you haven’t, here’s how they work: The kids retell a story from their dads’ childhoods, a story they’ve clearly heard a million times, and then the dads act out their kids’ retelling of it, with their kids’ dialogue and everything.
Adds a whole new meaning to the expression “unreliable
narrators,” don’t you think? :)
But it also raises an interesting question: Would your manuscript
be more exciting if you let another narrator tell it? Something to mull over
while you check out the first episode of Kid History...
My favorite Kid History episode is actually the second one, so if you have a minute, you might pop over to Youtube and check it out. And I hope everyone has a great Friday and an even greater weekend!
