We learn best through stories. From the Bhagavad Gita, Bible, Koran to today's education through "cases" -- stories work, engage, edify, involve.
This is why I have worked to support AwesomeStories so long. This is why we build story-writing apps for students and teachers. Here is a "story" I wrote about the impact of "story" and writing on the brain.
Now I am going to write fictional stories. Here are some of the sources that have meant the most to me so far. I plan to gather notes on each here.
Karl Ove Knausgaard
Louisa May Alcott
Emmy Laybourne (my niece)
