Bob also led a workshop called, "My Story, Your Story, History"
in which participants (limit 30) learned the basic techniques of creating
and sharing a story based on personal experience. They learned what
kind of personal material makes a good story, and how to shape it into
a dramatic form. He says of the workshop,
Tell my personal story-to strangers?! Not me! But, despite my
terror, I learned to spin my joys, pains and adventures into actual
tales. Unbelievably, I found that nothing else I told reached so deeply
into listeners' hearts. In this workshop I will help you find the
story gold in your life and craft it into tales that speak to others.
Revisit your past, honor those you loved, and hear your audience tell
you, "Yes, the same thing happened to me."
