I talked about the difference between being a good talker and being a good listener. I discussed the elements of a good story and how to tell it. I discussed examples of good story-telling, including Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and The X-Men. 

A good story starts with a background of evil. Some evil force is active, and the main character of the story must resist the temptations of evil while fighting for the forces of goodness. The main character must be relatable to a universal audience, dealing with the same forces that every person deals with daily. There must be a learning curve as the main character figures out how to manage temptation, resist evil, and fight for everything that is good. Finally, there must be a resolution in which evil is destroyed, preferable by the main character.
