Ann, your post reminded me of the last time I was in my hometown. A group of us got together for brunch. I was going to take just my 2 besties from high school. We ended up with my cousin and a classmate that I hadn't seen in 40 years. It is always fun taking a brief look at where you came from and where you are now. It is both an experience of humbling and gratitude. Thank you for sharing your experience and may you have many more as delightful as this one.

Welcome to the world of storytelling, Kim! I'm glad you learned from your experience, but don't let your lessons learned get you down. The only was to get better is to tell more and more. I look forward to hearing your others stories!

It's always interesting to see how others craft their stories. I don't use a storyboard, because even if I use stick figures, I get frustrated if the picture does not come out like I think it should. Now you'll have to share how the technique that you are trying works for you!

I agree the truth and the "truth" is always a balancing act. The true story for me is one where the point does shine through. If that occurs, it doesn't matter if the shoes were brown or red, the truth of the story is there.

I really liked the tip about an idea log. I started using this to record my mother's stories but I never had used it for my personal stories. Thank you very much for sharing that.

Thank you again for reminding us to find memories and how to use them to create a story. This has helped me in finding stories to tell.

I used to joke and say "I'm going to move to Phoenix. It was prophetic. I did move here and after retirement I wanted to explore my creative side that was dormant for so many years. Storytelling did that for me. It is good to have you as a comrade on this journey.

Our ancestors stories are the treasure that keeps on giving. Maybe that's why God created grandmothers:).

Wow! It's amazing how many cultures speak of the advantages of having a gentle tongue. The Chinese have a way of showing it. I wonder if we all adopt a gentle way to say "no" that doesn't embarrass or belittle, how many conflicts will cease?

Kaden, My growing up was very similar to yours, an only child in the 1960's. I read mostly non fiction and found one in the school library about a girl who was in a similar situation that I was in. It helped me get through it. I don't even remember the title. I read non fiction books now, but keep going back to fiction for the inspiration it gives.

Oh what a great piece to think about. I hope we never are in a situation where we have to choose. If I chose writing, I would miss such works such as The Wind in the Willows. I chose talking I would miss hearing the great stories being told by my classmates and others. You post let me cherish communication of all types.

Thank you for sharing your story. The more we tell our stories as women in the workplace we teach the women coming behind us the importance of education, and the strength to fight for their rights.

What a great story. My mom is 93 so I can relate to how cherished their stories are.

I love the beauty of this post. Even though I don't have children, I always have thought of childbirth as sacred. The definition that I most feel in tune with is-set apart. In reading it for class, I remembered that I was taught that in a bible study class. I now feel comfortable using the word sacred in anything that I choose to set apart.
