How to find stories and decide which ones you should tell — an intro to BWSS, a new training series by MEEEE!

 

This is going to be my most comprehensive storytelling training — and my most scrappy.

A couple of weeks ago, fired up to work but in charge of a baby who doesn’t like me being on the computer (unless she’s allowed to go all salcKjiefwijoewfiojefwijoefw on the keys herself), I came up with a solution:

To start making audio training while out walking with her on my back. I made this decision, then 5 mins later recorded the first one. Then the second and the third. And, to tie it all together, an intro that I’m sharing today. I’m calling them:

The Baby Walk Story Sessions.

(I may have made that title up on the spot)

I’m not doing this like a trad big podcast launch, because I’m thinking of it more as “audio training” than “BRAND NEW PODCAST I AM LAUNCHING”. But I will stick it up on iTunes on the Yes Yes Marsha feed, which has various bits and bobs (including all the interviews I did with comedians for my old Marsha Meets… podcast, and various other stories and bits and bobs).

In this, the introductory episode, you find out:

  • How to figure out which stories to tell (or which parts of your story)
  • The biggest myth about storytelling, and
  • Why ANYONE can be a powerful storyteller

All in 9 mins! Listen HERE:

Or you can listen HERE on iTunes
Or here on Stitcher

Any thoughts / questions you’d like me to answer in future episodes? I’d LOVE to hear them in the comments below. And if you know someone who’s trying to figure out which stories to tell — or just likes listening to the sounds of a busy park and a yelling baby — you can share this with them using one of those round buttons below, or click HERE to share on Facebook!

You rule!

    I love this so much Marsha! I love the topic of this series, and the fact that you are recording it on the fly with your baby on your back is so awesome! Add on that the sound quality is really good (considering you aren’t in “ideal” conditions) with the baby offering their input, so good!!! (Y)

      Jim! What lovely words, thank you so much! (And in full disclosure: I did have to re-record this one once because the first recording was too windy!)

    Marsha! I parked your email about Baby Walk #1 in my inbox for 6 weeks. And it was so worth it!
    What a fun series. Looking forward to the next ones now.
    And… glad I’m not the only one who still sometimes cycles like a pre-schooler :-)
