Tomorrow night I’m going to participate in a storytelling event. That means talking about a personal story in front of a bunch of people I don’t know. I should feel scared, nervous and ready to bolt, but I’m actually looking forward to it. I took a storytelling class a few years ago and loved it. It takes something I love, writing and reading, and combines it with public speaking. It also lets me be open in a way that’s hard for me to do on an individual level, if that makes any sense.
I really can’t wait.
