Ep 18 Writing Works Wonders


Topic: Round Robin Story Telling
Co-hosts: Cheryl McNeil Fisher and Kathy King

Something completely different! Fun and informative. Don’t miss the stories we spontaneously created using a special technique. From llamas to bananas, see if you can anticipate the twists and turns these authors synthesized on the fly.

—Round Robin Storytelling – Chain Storytelling –Progressive Storytelling! —

Yes, they use all those names, but the point is pretty much the same, the next person/author adds on more to the story. And we had great fun using this technique to exercise our creativity and explore new skills to add our repertoire. Let’s see where the stories take the group! Drama, mystery, and humor included.

We began with a story prompt from different genres each time. We also experimented with different guidelines for the storytelling. Are you ready to laugh? Click play!

We need to know- which do you like best?
