Storytelling a Team Sport

Storytelling a Team Sport

Red Sox or Yankees? Uconn or U. Tenn? Does it matter? Mass Mouth ( ) or the Moth ( ) no not in storytelling or really in sports. We can choose who we follow and root for, we just need to pick our game and be enthused. Put on your Storyteller t-shirt and become a fan of original entertainment. Let your friends know who you follow. Check out their webpages and make storytelling a prominent place in your life. Who’s on your homepage? do storytellers rank their own column in your ” Favorites”, are we complaining that no one cares or listens but not doing our piece about cheering on the team?

Team Storyteller will be having lots of events through the rest of the year and I plan to support the whole team by promoting these venues and the people who bring their stories to homeplate batting for a homerun!
