Thread Name: Story selection - storytelling to adults
Subject: RE: Story selection - storytelling to adults
Adults - innuedeno - they get it...it flys over heads of the kids....resque but safe. (However, the 12 year olds have a personae from TV that implies they know....more than they... DO Know.)

A copy of "Soup Stone" was in the local trash. Grabbed it quick...price free...for the taking.

Even the guesomness can be veiled, so the adults witness and the children only hear. Metaphor/Analogy/Simile.

Your monologue is memorized. You have said it 100 times, times ten. WRITE IT DOWN.

EVERY paragraph (no matter how short) should contain a visual/tactile/offifery/kenesthetic/oudio/smell sensory connection.

Look for fun....look for puns....look for enuendo....and include them.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle
