Hey there, my name is Connor Rickett.
I’m a writer.
I love stories. I love writing, I love telling stories out loud, and I love listening to a good story. I don’t think I’m anywhere close to alone in that. Stories matter; they help us make sense of the chaos around us, and even define who we are.
Everyone’s got stories to tell, but not everyone gets to tell them. A lot of people want to, but something’s holding them back. Sometimes it’s time, sometimes it’s the work, sometimes it’s the skill required. The truth is, though, you can get better at telling stories with practice, and the effort doesn’t need to take over your life.
If you’re interested in learning more about storytelling, whether it’s the how that interests you, the why, or the art and science behind good stories, this is the place for you.I want to learn more about stories!
Regarding the New Direction
We’re taking this whole site in a new direction, moving away from the “how to make money” side of things that everybody and their brother’s sister’s uncle’s buddy is doing, and focusing on storytelling. That may seem like a small niche but it’s broader than the first glance might indicate, and it’s critically important to anyone who wants to write a book, market a product, or engage an audience.
What I’m getting at is that there’s plenty to cover, and we’re going to cover it all.
