Become a Better, More Intentional Writer
Anese Cavanaugh, guest on episode #104 of The Storytellers Network, didn’t consider herself a storyteller. She thought that had to mean following a specific story structure, maybe creating a hero’s journey each time and coming up with stories.
In talking with Dan, listening to episodes and looking over the show prep for their interview, Anese realized that she’s been telling stories her entire professional life. She used stories in her first book, Contagious Culture. And she uses them in her most recent release, Contagious You.
Once she came to terms with how much of a storyteller she was, she decided she wanted to be more intentional.
So now Anese and Dan are starting a 21-day story gathering “writing challenge.”
Each evening you think back on three stories (things that happened) in your day. Write these down with these points:
- Who were you with?
- What was the predominant emotion?
- What are the 3 core points from the story?
- What is your key learning?
At the end of 21 days you’ll have more than 60 stories you can begin to pull from, and be more intentional with what you share.
Are you in? Share your journey on social media with the hashtag #threestories, tag Dan
and let’s get to work!
If you liked the show, please consider sharing this podcast with your friends, family and network. Your stamp of approval is more valuable than anything I can offer to your network. I appreciate your sharing! Also, leaving a review (and rating) helps spread the word. And just makes me feel warm and squishy. The Storytellers Network with Dan Moyle
publishes every Monday at 7 AM EST.
