Story time!

I would like to pry you away from your training (just for a little bit, I promise) and coax you towards your keyboard.

As you might imagine, I’ve talked to a TON of people about this project. To my delight, everyone wants to write something… but then they pause, usually because they’re not sure what they should write about. Some poeple have started writing, only to give up thinking their writing isn’t good enough.

Alas! Everyone is too hard on themselves! If only I could coax you out of your shell just a wee bit. I know you are passionate, so TELL ME A STORY!

I want you to write a story about a really awesome (or scary, fun, invigorating, enlightening) experience you had training. A sentence, a paragraph, 50 pages. Anything. Write about a gorgeous day, the first time you stuck a kong-pre/cat-pass, your first class, that time your mom tried it, that one time at that jam, sleeping under the stars on a jetty. ANYTHING.

So, was that a story that just flashed through your mind? Care to share it? Send it in!

There is a Contributors’ FAQ:
And you can submit writing via the form on the About page:

Once I’ve collected a bunch of them, we’ll publish them one-a-day as a series. Future readers will be able to read through all the stories as a connected thread within the larger project.

Hello world


Today I started spreading the word about this project. We had been talking with a few people to get some initial feedback and to iron out wrinkles. But, we think we are now as ready as we are going to be!
