It's All About Story

Everything we do, everything, can be formed as a story.  A story we can tell to others so they know more about us.  A story we can weave together for entertainment.  A story we can use to teach a lesson.  Oh there are so many uses for Story.  If only, as the old parable says, we dress Truth in Story's finery, people will listen.

Stories come to us in a variety of ways.  Some of my blogs will be about how a particular story came to me.  Other blogs will be a story-gift from me (teller) to you (reader/listener).  Sometimes I will tell you about the story's journey from discovery (by me) to the telling (to an audience).  As a former teacher and librarian I used stories in my work, some of the upcoming blogs will explain how I used a story in my work.

Blogging From A to Z Challenge

It's March again.  I'm in the midst of helping to produce another Rocky Mountain Storytelling Conference.  And yet I signed up to participate in the Blogging  from A-Z Challenge.  

Call me crazy - but this year I think I can pull it off.

Why?  I have more help in the production arena AND I've settled into my new town - one year, 12 days, 15 hours!  So yeah, I think I'm ready.

Stop by beginning April 1-30 to see what I've written about storytelling, story writing and life in general.
