Storytellers’ Topic for March 2019

“Lost and Found”

Did you ever lose something?  Well, of course; that happens all the time:  Where did I put my glasses?  or  Where did I park the car?

This month’s topic deals with more important kinds of losses.  Think of a time when you couldn’t find something that was really important to you.  Here’s a personal one:  Where did I store my wedding dress? (This is NOT the one I’m going to write about, however.)

Set the stage: 

  • What was the item?
  • Why was it important to you?
  • When/how did you discover it was missing?
  • How did the loss make you feel?
  • What did you do?
  • When/how did you find the missing item?
  • How did you react the discovery?
  • What, if anything, did you learn for the experience?
