I am still laughing... I am curious has this ever happened to you?

I don't even know where to start. But I am dying to tell it and I am dying to read your reactions Last Friday night, I had a storytelling concert at the Family Resource Center in Warsaw, KY. This is my first visit to Warsaw and though I have talked in the past with both the local Public Library and the Family Resouce Center and finally our calendars opened up and the stars aligned and it was going to work out.



We signed our Contracts and I was careful to get the phone number… Continue

What a year! Now how about next year?!

That's right it is time to turn my attention to 2009. I think you should too. I have already started looking at the holidays... where are they in relationship to the weekends? Thanks to our Congress almost every "one day" holiday is jammed into a Monday. I am compiling my festival list and deciding which ones I want to court and remind myself of which ones are courting me. Where do I want to go again, and which projects do I want to attempt this next year.



So what do I want for… Continue

The NSN 2008 Conference, Southeast Region Tellers from Kentucky are... Yippee!!!

I don't know how the other states in the Southeast selected their Showcase Tellers to represent them at the NSN Conference in Gatlinburg, TN. But this is how Kentucky did it. The following is a letter from our NSN State Liaison, Mary Hamilton. She also is our KY Storytelling Association (KSA) President for 2008. I am picking up her letter after the salutation and opening statement to all the Members of the KSA.



"Entries were received. Out-of-state panelists judged, and the following… Continue

The adrenaline rush of progress is over and the cool reality is setting in... for me.

I woke up this morning, 8:30 a.m. and those of you who know me... know just how rare that really is. I slept late by about four hours. I fried a mixture of potatoes, peppers, onions, cooked some bacon & eggs, toasted oatmeal bread & a nice glass of orange juice, a huge cup of coffee. Two actually I drank one cup while fixing my meal and then I settled into to my seat to eat it while watching Book C-Span on my little tv. Macio Maku, noted Quantum Physicist was talking about his new book… Continue

Little by Little things get done (Aesop 600 BC) Five things I did today for my storytelling

3/24/08



1. I spent part of my lunch studying a chapter out of Robert McKee's book..."Story." There is a discussion about Unity & Variety, Pacing, Rhythm & Tempo, Social & Personal Progression, Symbolic & Ironic Ascension, and the Principles of Transitions. I have the feeling that I will be studying that book for years to come.



2. I mailed two CDs to a customer for CDs sold through storyteller.net. This site is starting to work better for me as a… Continue

Pre-Post Card Re-Write, Five things I did for my storytelling today

3/20/08



1. I printed off all the comments that everyone made about my finally revealed postcard.



2. I read it at least ten times. And demanded objective answers from myself about the questions everyone had asked of me. Why do I hang onto the moniker "Toolmaker?" What does that have to do with storytelling? What am I really trying to say about myself as a teller when I use the term "toolmaker?"



3. Sat very still, and listened to past conversations in my… Continue

3/18/08



1. Mailed CDs to those who bought them from Sean's site Storyteller.net and the NSN site Storynet.org.



2. Mailed my taxes in today... drum roll please, cymbals... and that is one less thing I have to distract me while I am trying to think about stories. My Uncle used to say... "If you have to swallow a frog... don't look at it very long. And, if you have to swallow a lot of frogs.... swallow the biggest one first. Then it's all downhill from there." I think… Continue
