Tell Your Story
April 27th is Tell a Story Day. Storytelling has been around nearly as long as language has.
Celebrate Tell A Story Day:
Share Your Story - Whether it's a funny thing that happened to you on your way to school or a serious personal account of an important period in your life, your voice deserves to be heard.
Listen to Others' Stories - Just as your story is important, so are the stories of others. Gain a better unerstanding of your friends, family, and maybe even strangers by paying attention to what they have to say.
Microfiction - Microfiction is a form of extremely concise storytelling. For example, Ernest Hemingway's 6-word tragedy, "For Sale: baby shoes, never worn." Try making your own 6-word horror tragedy, such as "My monthly data plan is 100MB."
The importance of storytelling is that it connects humanity through experiences. So this Tell a Story Day, take time to listen to the voices of your community and add your own to the mix.
