On episode #52 of the Speak Up Storytelling podcast, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk storytelling!
In our followup segment, we shout out several dedicated listeners and discuss the benefits of dot journaling.
In our Homework for Life segment, Matt talks about how a small moment in the present can often be connected to a similar moment from the past, thus producing an excellent story.
Next we listen to a story by Aaron Wolfe.
Amongst the many things we discuss include:
The power of contrast in storytelling
Using humor seamlessly and purposefully in a story
The use of accents in a story
An interesting way tp present previous events in a story
We then answer listener questions about titling stories, living with a storyteller, and strategies for making room for stories when you're not standing on a stage.
Finally, we each offer a recommendation.
