Tomorrow I’m off to another conference, this time a 3-day one for storytelling. Not the advertising technique, the “Once upon a time…” type of oral storytelling. Last year was the first one and I met a wonderful bunch of people, so I’m really looking forward to meeting them all again and seeing them perform.

The catch (and maybe the best part) is that I’ll be performing too. You see, I really want to get into this. My one performance at last year’s conference went really well and I really enjoyed it. It’s a natural fit with writing stories and tour guiding, and a great way of selling my books if I get good at it. But I’ve been busy, and I haven’t done a darn thing about it all year. So this is forcing me to get a move on and go chase my dreams.

It’s just terrifying, that’s all.
