This course is designed to be long, comprehensive, thorough, a lot of little nuances here, when it comes to being a great storyteller. But keep one thing in mind. There's really only one ironclad rule. Teach your story work on the audience you were speaking to, you can ignore half most almost all of the rules I give you and other storytelling experts give you as long as it works with your audience. That's the ultimate test. So don't get so hung up on.
Oh my gosh, did I spend enough time on the setting? Or was there quite enough words of dialogue? Don't obsess over every little piece of this puzzle. Instead, focus on the big picture. Is this actually resonating with your audience? If they understand your story, if they're leaning forward, if you see them nodding.
If you see their eyes get bigger occasionally. And most of all, when they come up to you afterwards and tell you about the story, how it made an impact on them. That's when you know the story worked. So focus on the big picture.
