050I – Become a Story Genius: An Interview with Lisa Cron

Episode 050I Become a Story Genius
Listen to this episode

In addition to teaching writing in the UCLA Extension writing program, Lisa Cron is the author of both Wired for Story and Story Genius. She is an energetic and enthusiastic speaker who will reignite your fire and passion for writing!

Lisa says that her first book, Wired for Story, is more of an explanation of how it all works in the audience member’s brain when they are reading or watching a story. Story Genius takes it a step further and explains how to make your stories amazing.

If you’re a neuroscience geek like me, there’s really interesting stuff to get your mind racing along those lines. But if you just want to know, Why do people love the stories they love?, Lisa and her books will help you better understand it.

This interview is so interesting on so many levels! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

    Always love hearing Lisa Cron talk about story, I could listen for hours!

    She also has a Story Genius course with Jennie Nash on Jennie’s Author Accelerator website that I took and loved. It reallly helped me dig deep and understand the process of story.

    Thanks so much for having her on and giving me another chance to learn from the best!

    I’m really interested in your Write Now workshop but I’m financially handicapped that’s why I applied for the writers scholarship so I can always subscribe to your diverse programs.
