All the ways to tell a story

I saw this Google commercial today, and I think there are a lot of cool things going on with it writing-wise, and in only thirty seconds. By only using Google searches, the video manages to convey the story of a teenage girl trying to fit in at a new school, and she ultimately decides that the best way to do this is to be herself—and “herself” is a non-traditional manifestation of the feminine, which makes me really like this video from a social aspect.

One of the most important things I learned from my professional writing degree at Michigan State was the idea that communication extends beyond straight written or verbal communication. There are many ways to tell a story, to convey a message, and while a certain story will not work in an unlimited number of forms, every form of communication has stories that are best conveyed in that way.
