This Week’s Episode:
As my birthday approaches, my husband suggests a really nice dinner. I (half) jokingly respond with, “New choice!”
He ups the ante to a theme park visit. I quickly respond with, “New choice!”
Then he says, “How about we go to Japan?” I am ALL IN on that idea.
You know you’ve found the love of your life when you and your spouse play improvisation games in normal conversation. (Well, that or you’ve been doing Improv for a long time).
My guest, Rick Hall, also knows all about Improv. He’s an actor, writer, and great storyteller himself (as you’ll discover with the many enthralling stories he shares on the show today).
If you want to know:
Why choose to sing a story as opposed to just talking it out? AND Why does it better benefit your story to be more ruthless in your editing? Then you’ll enjoy my discussion with Rick as we dip our toes into the world of musical Improv and storytelling lessons from growing up in a small town, including the importance of cutting off the fat and removing distractions in your stories.
What you will learn in this episode:
- How to edit your story to include only what belongs
- How stories can change over time while the core still remains
- How to pull a life lesson out of a story
