Slow and Steady Wins the Race: Stor e Telling November December 2009

Tortoise and Hare
Jean Grandville, 19th Centuy
I have penned the Stor E Telling column since January of 2002 and the articles from 2002-2006 are the publications page of my website found here http://www.storybug.net/stor-e-telling.html. I will be adding the columns from 2007 to 2012 to that page as well. However, I am in the process of checking what link URL's have changed or are now defunct. It is a time consuming process so I am taking the “slow and steady” approach via Aesop and will post the individual columns on my blog for now.

I will not be adding current columns until the following year, so if you want immediate access to the newest websites, consider becoming a member of the
National Storytelling Network.

Please feel free to comment on the blog and let me know if you find this useful.

P.S. I know many of you are probably tired of reading the above message, which I use in all of my Slow and Steady articles. However, I continue to use if for those new readers who might not know the reasoning behind these blog posts, and of course, to make them aware of the NSN. There is always a method to my madness. Thanks for playing along.
