Jack just finished another book, Instructions from the Cook.
“What are you thinking about now,” I asked him.
“Storytelling,” he said.
Jack’s got some good ideas for teaching people to develop a good ear for storytelling. I’ve learned much just from observing how Jack interacts with people, asking small questions that get a person talking, and soon enough, that person’s story emerges.
From my coversation with Jack, I realized that, in developing my mistersugar brand and online identity, I’ve been developing a story that gives context to the brand.
Now, I’m thinking about a story from my Peace Corps days, about a lost dog and a funny parable from my brother Noel about where that dog might have gone. Watch, or listen, for it here soon.
