How to Grow a Story: the Three Essential Processes

The Beginning Storytelling Toolkit - Complete Version

Doug Lipman photoA Complete Storytelling "Course-in-a-Box" for Absolute Beginners

by Doug Lipman

Guaranteed to teach you to tell stories effectively and with ease - or I'll refund your complete purchase price AND pay you an extra $50 to compensate you for wasting your time! (You can't lose.)

What you will learn

This Toolkit will cover a lot of ground, but there is no fluff in it. You can expect to learn the key practical elements of the following subjects:

  • Starting out as a storyteller, with no prior knowledge about the subject
  • Learning a story without memorizing
  • How to practice a story
  • The five key tools for accellerating story development
  • Four secrets for captivating your listeners
  • The five main ways to be boring (and how to avoid them)
  • Three tools for making your stories meaningful
  • How to teach through your stories
  • How to find, shape, and tell a life-experience story
  • Taking a story off the printed page
  • Adapting a folktale
  • The "organic way" to grow a story from scratch
  • Three keys to story structure
  • Starting off your story
  • Giving your story a satisfying conclusion
  • The role of body language
  • Expressing emotion in a story
  • Creating character voices without straining your vocal cords
  • Developing your storytelling imagination
  • What to focus on while you're telling
  • How to relate to your audience
  • How to get helpful feedback obn your storytelling
  • Dealing with "Performance Anxiety" and gaining confidence in your storytelling
  • Where to find resources for advancing your storytelling beyond the basics.

Consider the Deluxe Version—for even easier learning

To make doubly sure that you succeed, I'm offering you the option of the Deluxe version, which includes everything in the Regular version, but also:

  1. Written transcriptions of all four lessons
  2. Written transcriptions of all four coaching/question-and-answer calls.

If you prefer to read (rather than listen to) the lessons and coaching calls, the Deluxe version lets you do so. Even if you listen to all the lessons (which I recommend), you'll find the transcriptions invaluable for note-taking and review.

  1. A certificate good for a half-hour, individual coaching call with me.

    If there is some obstacle in your way, you can use that individual coaching call to blast through it.

I charge $110 for a 30-minute coaching call. Since the Deluxe version costs only an extra $50, this is a no-brainer! One way to think of it is that you'll get coaching at a 50% discount—and over 150 pages of transcriptions free!
