Why did you enter this storytelling contest?
I had been inspired even last year to enter after a friend brought it to my attention, after making it to the top 30 – I experienced some personal problems – those of us who have lived through this pandemic will be all too familiar with – I was unable to upload my final story, so I promised myself that I would come back to tell my stories to its fullest capacity
What does storytelling mean to you?
Storytelling is a way for me to relate my internal world to the external world – it is my means of expression and communication. I understand the world around me through stories.
Why did you tell this story?
It’s part of a series I want to do revolving around fire and surviving death – this was one of the lighter fire stories I have and I think it sets up a great precedent for the coming stories.
