EXERCISE for Week Two: VOICE AS INFLUENCED BY AUDIENCE
    

A.  Tell a story in your own voice(s) about something fictional that happened to "you," that is, "you" as a first person narrator.   Tell it separately to three of these people:

    Your mother

    A judge or policeman

    Your therapist

    Your best friend

    A child

    Your boss

    A newspaper reporter

    A nosey neighbor

    
B. Now have one of those people tell the same story to somebody else.  This person will be recounting the story that you told, so that we get that person’s impressions of you in the telling.
