10.7 Dispatches

I send out a newsletter every month with information about what I’m up to. It’s fun and short and I’d like to try and interest more people to join. For the next few months, I’m going to post what I wrote in the newsletter the week after it’s sent out. You can have a look and see if this is something you might want to appear in your inbox every month. Scroll to the bottom to sign up.

Sometimes you suck and that’s okay!

Basically, I skipped January.

The older I get, the more winter hits me. It was a time to lay low, go on a social media hiatus, crawl up in a blanket, and watch Brooklyn 99 from the start for the third time. #TeamCaptainHold.

But things are getting exciting again!

Last year, back in November I performed at Stories We Don't Tell. I feel like the story didn't land and I wasn't happy with it. Sometimes things don't work out, no matter how much you prepare. So, I went home that night and started working on another story for January. It was an important story to me and I wanted to make sure I got it right. At the end of the performance, I managed to entice the audience to sing 'We Are The Champions' together, so I'm taking that as a win. You can read about it on my blog.

We're doing double duty again on events. We have our usual monthly installment of Stories We Don't Tell. For the third year in a row, we're producing the premier event at the Toronto Storytelling Festival. The lineup is looking pretty darn fantastic so far. RSVP to both events at the links below. Also, the Stories We Don't Tell Podcast is celebrating its 100th episode, which is a pretty big deal, if I don't say so myself.

Comments about the new book have been good so far. It's a tough one and I appreciate people sticking with it. As always, thanks for the support.

Below are some links to get you started.
