On episode #51 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk storytelling and celebrate our one year anniversary with the second half of our live episode!
In our followup segment, we celebrate the recent success of listeners.
Next we listen to stories by Rachel Leventhal-Weiner and Beverly Brakeman.
Amongst the many things we discuss include:
Opening scenes that activate imagination
Making a story more about yourself
The power of brevity
Approaching emotional topics from varying angles
The advantages of keeping your story "in the moment"
In our Homework for Life segment, Matt talks about stealing a Homework for Life moment from Elysha, and he talks about how it might be turned into a story.
We then answer listener questions about critiquing stories while remaining positive, naming characters in storytelling, trigger warnings, and more.
Finally, we each offer a recommendation.
