What is storytelling?
Storytelling is made up of two words STORY means a tale and TELLING means to told what happens. Storytelling simply put the words in a sequence so, that a movie creates in the mind of people with their own words.
The storyteller says if we went back a little and after picking up history, these stories have been going on ever since humans started understanding things. In ancient times, I was coming through the medium of pictures.
In today’s time, it is coming in digital form, some stories are true and some are imaginary. Since childhood, stories have been entertaining us.
The story is the only reason that we get to know our history, it is to be seen, in every form, whether you talk about movies or every wake of books, you will get stories here.

DIFFERENT WAYS OF STORYTELLING
01. Oral Storytelling
The oldest way to tell a story was to tell stories to each other orally, in the old time. In the same way we must have heard stories from our grandparents or in childhood, that were also part of oral storytelling.
If we take the example of ancient times, in ancient Greece, people used to come to listen to the stories of Homer, it is said that they used to listen to stories in such a way that people would get emotional with them in the story.
If you liked this oral storytelling, then you too can practice it and speak
02. Visual storytelling
This method is a good way to reach your story message to the people. In this, you can see the story through photographs or paintings to understand. In ancient times, people used to leave a painting in the cave and we used to leave them with the same pictures.
As time progresses, the human being develops new technology, such as radio and podcasts, you can reach your story to millions of people in one wake.
03. Written Storytelling
Ever since we started writing from humans, we have had a story written by us. If we go by example, then the two great epics of ancient times Ramayana and Mahabharata are very good examples of written storytelling.
In today’s time, since the invention of the printing press, since then the revolution in print media has started and people started writing. In the present time there are countless books in which stories are written, these all are examples of written storytelling.
The easiest and most effective way to reach out to people is through digital media. You can reach a story through photos or by making short videos, it is a very effective way to record voice.
In this way, you can use any of the four methods written above. You can reach all kinds of people in their own way, someone likes to listen to a story, someone likes to watch and someone, both you can hold your own with the help of digital storytelling and you can also earn money from that thing.
In the next sub-topic, I will tell you how you can make money from storytelling and how to convert your hobby into a profession.
SCOPE AND CAREER IN STORYTELLING
Now, the question is coming in your mind that how to make a career in storytelling, can you earn money from it? So, today we will tell what options do you have
The best option is a podcast. You have a good voice and people like your way and if you can connect with people, then you can communicate well, then podcasts can be a good option for you. It is like a radio. Just as radio is RJ, so in the podcast, the only difference is that other things are heard on radio apart from stories, but podcasts may not.
2. Public speaker
If you draw people from your stories, then it means that you have the quality that you can also become a good public speaker, a good influencer.

STORYTELLING IN OPEN MIC
Do you have a story and want others to know? But you are not a famous storyteller or author then, open mic is the best option.
If you do storytelling and are looking for a platform where you can go and perform, then you will hardly get any other option from the open mic.
Whether it is still your good luck or you are experiencing, open mic is a good platform for everyone.
In open mic, storytellers come and try their material in front of a live audience. There is a lot of open mic in India where storytelling can be done like, Tape A Tale which is in Mumbai.
A face that comes in the world of storytelling is personal narratives – stories on real life. These are the everyday stories of layman people.
With this you will be able to connect with the people easily, which will help you to move forward.
Now it is not for that those who do the job can not use it, any person who can bind the people to their story and connect with them. This is a sign of a good storyteller

Yes, storytelling is a topic in a mixed open mic. You can contact an open mic in which you want to perform
The only difference between writer and storyteller is that the WRITER uses written words in various ways to communicate but a STORYTELLER conveys through words, images, and sounds
This is not specific. This depends on the particular open mic and their terms and conditions.
