Love what you love

At Chipperish Media, story expert and New York Times bestselling novelist Lani Diane Rich podcasts about stories and storytelling, loving up on and learning from the best stories out there, including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Angel, The West WingOutlander and Star Wars!

And for the serious narrative nerds out there, Lani’s groundbreaking How Story Works podcast goes deep into narrative theory which applies to all stories, independent of form. So whether you’re wondering why that commercial made you cry, or trying to figure out how to structure a sprawling epic novel, this is the only how-to storytelling podcast you need.

“Thank you so much!”

I discovered your podcast when you guest hosted on Buffering the Vampire Slayer, just a few weeks ago, and you have already changed my life with How Story Works!

All my life I’ve felt the need to write, but it wasn’t until recently that I sat down with an idea for a novel. In the past two years, I have started, and lost the way with two book ideas. I didn’t know what I was missing, how to bring my feelings and ideas together in a coherent way, until I discovered you and HSW.

I have only made it to Episode 12: Seven Anchor Scenes, but feel I FINALLY have the tools to build a map for my book!

I am so excited to dig deeper into HSW and in turn my book!

So, thank you. Discovering you is the turning point in my dream of writing a book.
