A number of people have asked if I’m going to do an online FGS show while we’re all stuck at home. I’ll probably do some sort of online FGS show in May. I’m in the middle of moving right now so I don’t have the time to do anything like that this month.
Because I’ve never run a live Zoom show, I’ll more than likely just ask a few people to tell one of their favorite stories and see how that goes. I attended a few online shows recently and I can tell just by watching that MC’ing an online show is much different than hosting in person. So I’ll probably start out by doing a couple of curated shows and see how things go from there.
In the meantime, if you want to tell a story yourself online I know of two shows where you might be able to do that. Both producers are looking for tellers. Contact them through their Facebook pages for more info.

I’ll leave you with a story and a TED talk.
This a story I just found tonight. It’s a sweet and funny story about a KitKat bar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvyPn0FFPio
This is a TED talk from Matthew Dicks about how he comes up with so many ideas for stories https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7p329Z8MD0
Take care of yourselves. Keep writing. Keep talking. Keep noticing.
Stay out of your head as much as you can.
