Hello and welcome to another Wednesday where I share a story I’ve scrapped and hope I’ve managed to get the story all down.
My ‘test’ if you will, to knowing if I’ve succeeded in my quest to capture the story, will be that if I can just quote the journaling I’ve used on the page and not need/want to add anything here in the post to explain it further, then I have done it, I’ve got all the bits of the story down.
Here is the story from this page –
It’s all B’s fault. She told me that when they asked for her name in Starbucks she made one up. Alex was her choice. I thought it was so funny and didn’t really like giving my name so started to do the same. Except in the services on the way down to Heathrow, tha barista’s got their own back…..Alice!
The takeaway from story number eleven/would I add anything more?
Yes, I’d like to add lots more to this one. I think I was limited to space because of the frame I’d chosen to write in. It does get the jist across but not all the details. For instance we’ve been doing this for years, well ever since the UK Starbucks started asking for you name, which I still don’t really ‘get’. I would have like it fit that part of the story in too, that I just don’t see the need to ask customers for their names, unless it’s a very busy coffee shop! Maybe I’ll do another page with all the extra details on.
52 stories is a year long series or adventure in my story telling. Can I get the whole story onto a layout? Am I telling the stories I want to tell? Read the inspiration post here.
