I’m participating in a Blog Link-up with Kris (With a K), from www.withakwriting.com, because she wants to hear about the role writing plays in our businesses.
She is giving a Writing Workshop for entrepreneurs and bloggers, starting May 25th, and she wants to give away a scholarship to one of the lovely bloggers who participate in this link up. You can participate and get a chance to win too.
Just copy and paste this piece of text into the introduction of your blog post answering the question, “How has writing been beneficial to your business, and what do you want to Craft with your Voice next?” Link back to this post, so any of your friends who are entering will be able to find it for more info.
Finally, go back to Kris’s blog on or after May 12th to add your link to the link-up party there, and you could win a scholarship to her new course: Craft Your Voice. She’ll be drawing a name on the 18th of May for a full scholarship to the 6 week writing course, so you can write and link-up your post any time before then.
The first time I met up with Kris in August, it was more like meeting up with an old friend rather than someone who I had only recently met online. She is a wonderful storyteller as well, and we chatted for hours telling stories. Stories deepen our relationships with one another because we really get to know someone, really know who they are on a deeper level, through sharing their life stories, both big and small.
As I venture into a new 'BIG' Adventure (more details coming soon!), I want to be able to not only use storytelling in my writing as I teach classes, but also to teach others to tell their stories and understand how important their stories truly are.
I also want my voice to help craft new relationships as I teach. As a great story captures your attention from the start, draws you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat, I want my teaching voice to do the same. I would love to bring more energy and flare to my storytelling both in the stories I tell in my scrapbooks, but also as I teach my classes.
Are you a storyteller? What stories do you love to tell? Please share in the comments!
