Power of story = connect on emotional level

“You are a storyteller.”

“Waterfalls of ideas”

Your superpower = unique perspective

Learn from fellow writers.

Reading is story fodder.

Watch and read a wide variety of things.

Finish something and then try again.

Wrecking ball: tear it down and try again.
