In our Homework for Life segment, Matt talks about how we need to collect the small but significant moment, too, even if they are not storyworthy on their own.
Next we listen to a story by Alan Berkowitz.
Amongst the many things we discuss include:
The power of dialogue when used sparingly and significantly
Storytellers who can see and re-live their stories during the telling
Telling stories in scenes
Strategies for shortening stories
Adjusting stories depending on audience wants, needs, and overall composition
We then answer listener questions about living your life in search of stories and the application of storytelling strategies on the page.
Finally, we each offer a recommendation.
