To develop stories for social media PechaKucha is the right tool. We need a main message and then sub messages under the main topic to structure our story. The emotion we aim to elicit is also should be well organized at the beginning. Whenever we want to create a story we should think of the emotions of the audience, which emotions we want to produce. So, these make our audiences interested throughout our story. Furthermore, our each sub message should be explained and supported clearly with strong quotes or persuasive argument.
