Here’s the fourth page of the yeah, write! pdf you get
by donating to my Night of Writing Dangerously Fund.

Here’s what the page is about:
STORY YOU ALWAYS TELL:
This one is pretty straightforward.
Think of a story you always tell, and write it in the speech bubble!
The story behind the page:
Everyone has a story they always tell.
Or maybe there’s a story someone always tells about YOU!
I found this out when I went home 5 years ago for my sister’s wedding.
I was part of the wedding party (Maid of Honor! Oh yeah!)
and knew most of the other people,
but there were also many that I didn’t know.
When new people met me, they said,
“Oh yeah, you’re the one that played Clifford, right?”
Why yes, in fact, I DID once play Clifford the Big Red Dog.
My sister was also volunteering at the time,
and was my “handler”
(She made sure I knew what was going on,
since I couldn’t really see anything from the head down)
She said that she decided to tell people this story
because it sort of explains the type of person I am:
willing to do stuff for kids,
a fan of kidlit,
and pretty ridiculous and strange.
I saw her point.
I’ve already told that story; check it out here.
This sheet is great for writing down a story you always tell.
When you’re done, you can tuck it away
or send it to someone you know will enjoy it.
What story will YOU tell?
Here’s a video of what I ended up doing,
and my story written out!
More stories behind the pages coming soon!
