TIPS FOR MAPPING YOUR STORY: Before you call the pitch line!
Try practice-pitching your friend, your partner, your grandma! Watch to see when they lean in or when they look bored...
When you begin, try to reimagine a specific moment in time and some of the details to get yourself reimmersed in the action using your senses: What was around you? How did it feel? What scent comes to mind?
As an experiment, download a recording app on your phone & record yourself telling the story, and time yourself. Listen back and take notes!
