Good question! I've been doing more writing than storytelling these days, and I'm not happy about it! Maybe I'm in a funk about storytelling. I have a gig coming up on the 15th of December, and I'm excited about it! It's been a while. I'm focused on writing at the moment, but I miss telling. It's the time where I really feel alive, and I always get great feedback. I wonder if I'm not trusting myself.
I'm thinking the "2 people sharing one brain" is the normal state for storytellers. Like a lot of storytellers, I have not had as much work this year as I usually enjoy, so the percentage of time for writing vs storytelling has changed a bit for me. The other thing that I've noticed is that there seems to be the need to spend more time on the Internet, which is why I often go silent on the professional storyteller site - how many times can we divide ourselves? When I checked in today, your message resonated with me. Thanks for the subject. Be well and enjoy the holiday season.
