This true story is part treasure hunt, part murder adventure. More importantly though, it is my absolute favorite life story to tell live.

Competitive Storytelling

For those who don’t know, there is a large community of competitive storytellers worldwide. The events are typically free (or inexpensive), funny and uncommonly genuine (most storytellers are amateurs telling true stories about their lives). I am a big fan of this community and try to take part in it as often as possible. (I have been a competitor in three states and counting!)

The most popular competitive storytelling organization is The Moth. The video associated with this post was told at a Moth organized StorySlam in Seattle, Washington.

If there is not a branch of the Moth in your town, search for other local storytelling meetups. I have found some in every city I have lived in.

Should I continue to post more of these live story videos here on the blog? I love these storytelling events, but do all of you?
