Exercise #645: Your Thoughts
Posted 11/13/15

Today's exercise comes from Erica.

She said, “I was listening to podcasts when during a set in particular my brain went off on various story tangents. And I suddenly thought: I wonder if these would trigger others?

It is the TED Radio Hour from NPR and this particular one is called Trust or Consequences. The ones that caught my attention in story terms were the 2nd and 5th, but I think all five have potential. Each one is about 10 to 15 minutes long.”

Here is the link:

Please give us which section inspired you.

Critiquers, along with the usual grammar, spelling, etc, review, consider this question:
     * If you listened to the section which was “written to,” could you see the link between podcast and submission? Why or why not?
