Last year provided several exciting and rewarding projects where I used my skills as a writer to share experiences and stories with readers.
1. JennyQ's Blog: I launched my blog in May during my trip to Ireland. The intention was a travel blog where to share a story during each of my stops along my journey. Since returning home to Waterloo Ontario it has transformed into a platform to share ideas and experiences connected to either a personal journey or a community-connected event or business.
2. Nurse Jenny: I am an active member of the Guelph Guild of Storytellers. The guild was invited by the Guelph Civic Museum to research, write and perform original “Ghost Stories” for an event called History Hauntings. I wrote a piece called Nurse Jenny. It is a story inspired by the history of the Guelph Reformatory during World War 1.
3. Scrabble: This is a piece of writing I created as a flash fiction piece. The challenge was to write it within a 2-hour time frame. A combination of autobiographical details with a creative licence to mould time and memory resulted in an efficient and powerful story about my Dad and part of the journey of living with Dementia. Since its completion, I have been invited to present it as an oral story with my guild in May 2019.
Last year provided new venues where I could grow my abilities and skill as a storyteller.
July 2018: I was allotted a 20-min time slot at the Tea and Tales series in Guelph, Ontario. I was thrilled to learn and share several stories I picked up while away in Ireland. This is an outdoor venue and my third season storytelling at this event.
November 2018: I was invited to be part of a group presentation of a book called “A Bear in War” written by Stephanie Innes and Harry Endrulat. We presented to the entire school during a Remembrance Day assembly at Edward Johnson Public School.
December 2018: Sya Van Geest, another Guild member and I prepared a story for two voices called “A Creature was Stirring” written by Carter Goodrich. The presentation was at the Rockmosa Older Adult Centre located in Rockwood, Ontario.
