Today is a big day - it is the day I join the blogging/website world! This has been a long time in the making, with probably 6 blogs started and abandoned (can they even be considered 'started' when you only post once??), and at least 2 websites partially built, but never launched. What was the problem, you ask? Primarily a lack of time, and an even greater lack of anything to say. Oh, the irony! A spoken arts instructor with nothing to say?!? Well, nothing useful or meaningful or relevant. So, never let it be said that I don't suffer the same communication angst my students feel - I am just as 'real' and 'vulnerable' as the rest of you - I just have worked very hard to not let those fears limit me.
And today, I have conquered (or, at least, began to conquer) another communication fear. And hopefully, through my continuing work in the studio, I will help others conquer theirs. Onward!
Hello! My name is Donna, and Raconteur is my Studio. Words are my passion - especially beautiful, powerful words, beautifully and powerfully shared. I never planned to be a Spoken Arts instructor, but I was lucky enough to have fallen into the work 23+ years ago - and I have never really looked back.
