I had a great evening earlier this week when I was guest speaker at a Rotary Club Charter Night. I spoke on the topic, “Telling the stories,” beginning with the almost universal tendency we have to share our stories whenever we gather in social groups. And then I built it up from there to relate this story-telling to my own experience of writing Bunderlin
It seemed to go down pretty well. They were really friendly people and an appreciative audience. And they gave me a donation for the charity which I'd nominated – The Joshua Tree. Take a look at that one, folks. It's a great venture.
So I came away encourage to develop this side of my work more. I'm putting together some notes for another talk now. Still on the theme of story-telling, but this time focussing on the places which are special to us and seem to be full of stories waiting to be told.
Most of these ideas I have blogged about, but not very systematically so far.
