SORT BY Relevancy
This evening on this show which will be my third attempt to bring listeners an impactful Lesson One: On Collaboration for my new series on this show titled “Conversations With Anastasia On The Art of Dialogue/Conversation.” The other two tries didn’t go so well. So today I am like a kid who fell out of her saddle, needing to get back in it before I lose my nerve.
Join me this evening as I get back on my bike again, dust off my bottom and do my best to cross the finish line; the destination I am holding in my mind for a winning show. One of my major errors on those other two shows besides the technical difficulties, which were BIG at the time and resolved since, was that this show, Anastasia The Storyteller, has, to date, been established for me to share stories of the adventures of "Anastasia," that’s me, and the intriguing lessons I've have learned from the amazing life I've lived.
But those two other programs had almost no stories. What an oversight that was!
Today I make up for that lapse with stories of my own as well as those of others interwoven with philosophies on how to make a better world for you and me!
Please join me! And this evening, if you are around, I will be taking call-ins. So get in early!
Writers Nation Radio with Hosts Kaneen Morgan and Shalanda Norman with Guest Claudia Christian & Randi Zohr:
Claudia Hall Christian is a consummate storyteller. Whether she’s writing the long running Denver Cereal or a short blurb for her neighborhood newsletter, she tells heartwarming stories about people. These skills make writing traditional serial fiction — long-form stories that are published as they are written — a natural for Claudia. Her lifelong writing goal is to write a serial fiction set in every state in the United States. So far, she’s brought her brand of addictive, heartwarming fiction to Fort Worth, Texas, in the Queen of Cool, to Denver for the Denver Cereal, and now to Boston for Suffer a Witch. Last year, Claudia released the first of the Jornada del Muerto novellas set in Santa Fe. A prolific author, Claudia also writes the Amazon bestselling the Alex the Fey thrillers, as well as the Seth and Ava Mysteries. She currently has 22 published works. In order to keep up with her storytelling capacity, she co-founded a publishing house, Cook Street Publishing, with a group of friends.
Randi Zohr was born and raised in rural Wisconsin, where she started her teaching career. She moved to Alaska to take an extended sabbatical from teaching. While there, she fell in love with the mountains, so when it was over she moved to Denver and resumed teaching. Eventually the events that inspired this novel led her to her soul mate. Together they are living in Reno with their princesses where she is teaching, ironically for an online school.
The last broadcast show of Anastasia The Storyteller was plagued or blessed with "Divine Chaos," depending on how you choose to see an onslaught of unexpected mishaps. In this instance "Conversations With Anastasia On The Art of Dialogue" was seriously challenged, at least in the studio, albeit temporarily.
Join Anastasia and Lynn Cullather-Popkin, New Horizons Fundraising Chairperson, for a quieting of the last show’s chaos, at least for Anastasia, and a continuation of Lesson One: The Gifts of Collaboration. Anastasia and Lynn draw heavily on the “The Current Presidential Campaign Crisis” for an array of examples of the “Gifts Of Collaboration Versus The Costs of Opposition In Conversation/Dialogue.
Lesson One: Dialogue is collaborative. Debate is oppositional.
Theme: How Collaboration Can Change Problems To Solutions
Anastasia and Kim explore the goals and motivations for artful conversation. And what the elements are that make art of conversation. Anastasia invites listeners to visit the Study Guide for this show on her Anastasia The Storyteller blog site for an interactive compilation of exercises that build from this discussion and previous ones.
A follow up to this show titled "Gifts Of Collaboration Versus Opposition In Conversation/Dialogue" has been scheduled to broadcast soon to expand on the perspectives offered here and how Anastasia and Kim have lived these out with one another in real time.
Anastasia and her new "sidekick," Kim Beckett begin developing their new series, "Conversations With Anastasia On The Art of Dialogue" with this show. A good introduction to the show, as well as the series, can be heard on their previous show, "Trading In The Costs of The Quiet For The Riches of Dialogue."
On that earlier show reference is made to what it was that prompted New Horizons’ Coffee House Conversations initiative (New Horizons is the sponsoring organization for The Anastasia The Storyteller Radio Show). The back story for the initiative is introduced at the end of the prior show. It will be continued and used to introduce this present one as it provided the “love” behind the message of the Coffee House Conversations Project

One, a Caribbean thriller collection and two, the Stuff series, a humorous look at two twenty-four year old guys in South Florida who start their own detective agency and end up neck - deep in trouble. Skip and James from the Stuff series have often been compared to grown up versions of the Hardy Boys.
Jamaica Blue, Barbados Heat, South Beach Shakedown, St. Barts Breakdown and Bahama Burnout make up the Caribbean books. The Stuff series consists of Stuff To Die For, Stuff Dreams Are Made Of, Stuff To Spy For, and Don't Sweat The Small Stuff- which came out in December 2010.
