Lessons learned:

  • Story Shuffle is different than other storytelling events because there’s no judging or competition. We’re just telling stories, people.
  • We’re still feeling out the idea of a time limit, minimum or maximum.
  • The audio was stronger this time, with the recorder nearer and being more cognizant of that need.
  • No need to push yet on everyone inviting someone new each event.
  • We’ll try to move locations to spread the event that way.
