MothUP SEATTLE 21: Lost and Found

Lost. Found. 

Lost and Found. Phones. Pets. Our minds. God. So many things to lose and find. What did you lose? Or find? We want to know. And we want to know what you learned about yourself. Or about life. 

NOTE about the FUTURE: We are on may 31 not 24. 

Format review! 1. This is a TRUE story that *happened to you*. Your story has a BEGINNING and an ENDING. Maybe you learned a lesson. Or you changed. 

Tell us what happened to you, and make sure we know what the point of your story is. Why do you want to tell us this story? 

2. No Notes allowed. 

3. Time limits. To help you not run over time - a visual timer and audio cue at 10 mins will be provided. 

Our awesome audience gives the storytellers a warm and supportive environment for sharing, and our storytellers support the audience by adhering to format and respecting time limits. 

Advice to enhance the probability you'll get to tell your story: - come early - make sure your name is in the hat at the beginning of the event. 

We are officially registered as a MothUP group with the Moth.

    I think we got the whole bell curve of storytellers last night. We also had our first heckler. We went almost two years without someone trying to show off and I think that's a pretty good run. Luckily, it only lasted an uncomfortable few seconds and didn't affect the show. Look for the next one to show up sometime in 2014.

    I wish we could have put everyone up who wanted to tell a story last night. I really do feel bad about that. I know some people announced on Facebook to their friends that they'd be telling and then they weren't able to get on. Sometimes I think about adding another show each month but then I think it would be better to have one packed show rather than two shows with half-attendance. One audience member said after the show that he thought it was good that getting stage time wasn't automatic and when people got it they really appreciated it. I hope everyone feels that way. We can't DVR life and sometimes you just have to show up and cross your fingers.

    Hey Catherine, Just wondering about this date for March. The 4th Thursday in March is March 22nd, but this says March 29th. I want to try to make this one so just want to confirm that it is for sure March 29th?
