This is the start of an experiment in bridging the gap between organic storytelling to a group of friends, and writing the text out on a keyboard. It always feels that conveying a story, even a long and intricate one, seems to get fully formed and delivered with ease. In contrast, writing a recollection of what I ate for breakfast on the laptop would most definitely rended a choppy pile of sentance fragments. But maybe a rereading a transcript of a in-person retelling that seemed fluid and engaging at the time, ends up sounding like an elementary school kid's failing homework.

I am a good storyteller and a crappy writer... but are both of equal quality and just overvalue my verbal skills? I could just bring a tape recorder to a party and transcribe one or two of the longer conversations to see if any transtribable prose poured out, but the idea of stealth taping seemed super creepy.
