I went to The Moth Story Slam in New Orleans last January, and inspired by the first act's stories, I threw my name into the hat at intermission to tell a story of my own. I hadn't prepared anything or even told this particular story in this particular way before, but I enjoyed the opportunity to relive this odd time in my life and giggle with the audience. The spontaneity of the whole thing took the pressure off, and at the end of the night, I won!
This year, the winners of all the 2016 Moth stories will be participating in The Moth GrandSLAM on March 22nd at the Joy Theater. I'm nervous and feeling much more pressure now that I have the luxury of time to prepare. The theme is OUT ON A LIMB - come support if you can! Tickets here.
