Here we are again at the end of a year and the brink of yet another. For me, I can see where my storytelling has evolved over this past year from the variety of stories and setting in which I have told. Additionally, now that I have completed a year of graduate school, my storytelling has taken a more theoretical as well as academic approach in my though process and delivery. The year, 2017 has revealed to me that I have many avenues and uncharted waters to explore for stories. It will be my goal in 2018 and beyond to make the most out of these venues that I have previously shied away from in previous years.
Two new pieces I will be working on in the new year are more in the line of one man shows of historical figures in the African-American community. In addition to that, I want to expand on my own personal & reflective one man show which I presented for the first time at the Classic City Fringe Festival in Athens, GA this past year. These two new pieces will keep me busy throughout the year as I ensure that they are as close to perfection as possible without error.
Needless to say, I will always have a foothold in the African American genre of storytelling which is the root of my persona in the storytelling community. With that in mind, I will continue to increase my repertoire of stories and learn new material in addition to retelling and improving upon the classics that I have told for years.
So stay tuned as there is a lot more to come from this teller in the upcoming year!
Just some thoughts! 🙂
