On episode #8, Matthew and Elysha Dicks talk about finding excellent stories in your everyday life using Matthew's strategy "Homework for Life," including how some stories can take weeks, months, or years to tell.
Then we listen to Sharon Snow's story about her search for her father and the family she ultimately finds, followed by commentary and critique, including:
1. Elevating stakes in a story
2. Delaying a story to build suspense
3. The use of the phrase "true story"
4. The strategic use of humor
Elysha and Matt also answer listener questions about performance techniques and stream of consciousness writing.
