"As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." An excerpt from LeMarr Taylor's favorite quote suggests that leaders lead, more so by example and not simply by doling out directions. This is a mantra he has incorporated into his life by following the examples of those who have influenced him through their acts of servanthood, which he continuously strives to emulate. Join us as we speak with this charismatic Toastmaster, who moonlights as a poet, to see what motivates him to continuously take on new challenges in the arena of public speaking and how doing so has changed his life.

Today's episode is MY answer.
Selecting professions for your characters and deciding how they would act under a given set of circumstances is one of the most important decisions a fiction writer can make. Will they respond in a way normally expected of someone trained to do what they do? Will they go “over-the-top” or perform in a scared or devious manner? Each reaction is the basis for an entirely different story. Whether it is positive or negative, once the theme choice is made, the character still operates under the umbrella of their profession.

Each reaction might become the basis for an entirely different story. However, once the theme choice is made, even if they act strangely, unexpectedly or inappropriately, the character still operates under the umbrella of their profession, whether it is positive or negative.
Morgan, Denny and Eric explore what happens with the same set of circumstances when the character reacts in a way that is not typical to their profession. The story changes and one scenario can be played out many ways. Ninja hairdresser, anyone?
