No. not the kind Mom and Dad accused you of (rightfully) when they asked you who put the cat in the dryer..
I mean people who get up and read stories aloud.
I was telling a co-worker about my evening downtown listening to Boyle and he asked me if I’d be interested in going to a storytelling event at a coffee shop in Des Plaines on Sunday, and if so, he’d forward the e-mail to me with the details.
I said “Sure! I’d be interested!” and the wheels began to turn.
Not only can I use this as yet another tool to kickstart my heart, but I also began to think – maybe this is something I could get involved in myself, as a way to get myself out there.
From what I understand, these people read stories written by others. I could do that – and also read some of my own.
I think it’s worth looking into.
Any of you have any experience with it?
