60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: What Happens When We Pause Our Spoken Words?

  1. 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday: What Happens When We Pause Our Spoken Words? 2:32

Hello to you listening in Lorton, Virginia!

Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is Stories From Women Who Walk with 60 Seconds for Story Prompt Friday and your host, Diane Wyzga.    

As a keynote speaker, trainer, focus group facilitator, litigator, and storyteller I’ve had many opportunities over the decades to learn about and use the power of the pause. I’ve come to know that inviting the space of silence in a story – whether in a boardroom, classroom, or courtroom – creates an opportunity for speaker and audience to rest, live and breathe inside the story, to ponder, to reflect.

Our job as speakers and storytellers is not to rocket along to the end, but to create the opportunity where we can sit together quietly in the beating heart of the story. To inhabit that world together. That’s the “sorcery of stories” I work with.

Story Prompt: Imagine yourself speaking to your audience. Imagine taking the time to pause between your thoughts. What’s happens then? Write that story! 

Practical Tip: The magic of stories is also in the sharing. If you wish share your story with someone or something.   All that matters is you have a story.

You’re invited: “Come for the stories – stay for the magic!” Speaking of magic, I hope you’ll subscribe, follow, share a 5-star rating and nice review on your social media or podcast channel of choice, and join us next time! Remember to stop by the website, check out the Services, arrange a Discovery Call, and Opt In to stay current with Diane and Quarter Moon Story Arts and on LinkedIn.

Remember the first time you rode a bike and took your hands off the handlebars? And then because it felt fun and scary you did it again until you were streaking down a hill with the wind blowing in your face and your hands up over your head screaming, “Look ma! No hands!” That’s been the story of Diane's life. Showing up - maybe scared but not afraid - because when you fall down 7 you get up 8.

With 30 years in healthcare, business, law, higher education and storytelling Diane created a niche the world needs: helping socially conscious professionals and organizations connect, engage & succeed by crafting the stories that communicate their message. A recognized global podcaster (Stories From Women Who Walk and Daily 60 Seconds) Diane shares wisdom and interviews designed to help others become successful story creators. Speaker and Founder Engaged Storyism® Method.
