There are many database software programs out there to organize contacts. I wondered if there was a specific software out there for storytellers?
When I have my binders with notes on my repertoire, I lovingly call it "Story Storage". What if we had our own GoldMine or Access program that was developed specifically for storytellers in mind?
I have attempted to use Excel to see if it could do what I would want it to do.
For example, I would like to filter by country, culture, and themes. I imagine each form to be two pages so that when printed in hard copy form, then I could put the first and second pages within a plastic sheet and then put in my binder.
Then I would have the benefit of the search possibilities through the computer but I would also have the choice to print hard copy.
If someone has the skills to create this database, I would like to work with you. Or do you know someone who has the skills?
Do you have a "Story Storage" form(s) that works for you?
I have filled over three 3" binders on outlines of stories in my repertoire. I must have a better system.
Until we tell again,
