Story shapes (and exercise tips?) from Kurt Vonnegut

My Twitter friend Baxter Holmes sent me this Kurt Vonnegut video the other day. He said my post on everything you need to know about storytelling in 5 minutes reminded him of this. Kurt pulls it off in 4:37.

Probably because of this, I had a dream a couple of nights ago that Vonnegut was showing me around a college campus. I kept hoping he’d dispense writing tips. But all he talked about was exercise. More walking, he said. Some light jogging is good, too.

I’m trying, Kurt.

  1. I remember when he was in that movie with Rodney Dangerfield and he wrote a term paper for him. The professor in the movie gave it a bad grade and said that whoever wrote it had no idea about Kurt Vonnegut. Have always liked him. Wish I could remember the title of the movie, but it escapes me at the moment…LOL…
