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!
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.
Story Time! will appear here: https://parkour.theysaid.world/tag/is-there-a-story-you-would-like-to-share/
