1. I think I gained a new appreciation for language in general as well as a few techniques to help with speaking more and expressing myself more clearly. A few examples are the emphasis on word pronunciation and describing an image in my mind.
2. I noticed that throughout the session I was speaking more slowly and deliberately. The atmosphere was very playful, experimentative, and nonjudgmental so I felt free to try new things and explore what I was feeling. I feel like I left the session with a new wave of courage to speak and express myself more creatively.
3. I’m curious in learning even more about how creative speech is used in storytelling. Particularly the different styles and how it differs and stays the same throughout diverse cultures.
