Keep it positive

Fellow speaker,

World Champion Speaker Darren LaCroix suggests you don't want to bring your audience fully into a scene when something negative is happening. For example, if a character in a story is having a heart attack, you don't want to put the audience directly in the scene. Instead, describe the heart attack with inner dialogue that brings out the details of the event ("I was thinking, 'I'm having a heart attack. What do I do now?' ".

Avoiding the negative,
