Subject: RE: Story selection - storytelling to adults
Right. I had forgotten that your problem was telling at an open mike. My shows are sixty minutes so I have time to develop. Still, the more personal you make your story, the more palatable it will be to the uninitiated. The real trick is to be able to empathise with your listeners and to realize that they have to be catered to. I would, still, try to get them with "true" stories until you build credibility and they become comfortable with your role. Mazel mit glick.
