Thanksgiving Table: A Rich Story Source

In my storytelling workshops, one of the assignements that creates anxiety--second only to telling one's own stories--is coming up with a good story to tell. Many participants feel that everyone around them has far more interesting lives, and therefore, more interesting stories to tell.

The truth is, everyone's life is filled with experiences that can inspire, inform, teach and/or entertain others. The key is to be aware of all the things that happen and to take note of the details as they occur.

As you gather with family and friends for Thanksgiving, you have a golden opportunity to "mine" the experiences of those in the room as well as memories of those who have gone before. While you're enjoying the feast at the holiday table on Thursday, ask everyone for a favorite Thanksgiving memory. You're sure to leave with a treasure of tales to tell!
