The Narrative Overlord

The Narrative Overlord is the title of a lecture I recently delivered to the local Toastmasters Club. The full video is imbedded below this introduction.

There I was, surrounded; hungry, outnumbered, lost. I was young and inexperienced back then; I had no idea what I was doing.  I just knew that I loved every second of it. I was a big day dreamer in Highschool. I read voraciously and would write in my rhyme book and journal until I would pass out. I spent my Junior and Senior years in High School stuck in the books. Admittedly – I wasn’t even sure what I was reading half of the time. I would confuse myself with big texts on transcendental literature and Science books on how our sun creates energy – books I had no business reading.

This is when I realized what I wanted to become. Not just any marketing writer, fiction writer, or nonfiction writer. I wanted to be more.  I wanted to become “The” Narrative Commander!

I set my azimuth for this route, here I stand 20 years later, pursuing the same mission. Along the way I completed three major objectives. I learned how to lead stories, I learned the theories behind writing pedagogy, and I learned how to listen.
