Teaching: Some Read, Some Narrate, Some Speak, Some Preach, Some Interrogate, and Some Discourse. I teach by discourse, which is very suitable for Seminars. And honestly it is the only way I know how to teach – by guided storytelling. (I learned how to teach and manage by playing dungeons and dragons – really.) However, it is extremely difficult for me to read and speak at the wall, and interrogation is counter-productive. So the principle problem I have been having, now that I am ready to produce courses, is that I can’t actually present well without the ‘class’ (Audience). And the reason is I tailor my storytelling to the audience and their feedback. I can even work well in interview conditions. But without ‘responsiveness’ of an audience I find it almost impossible. Had I moved to London (or ny, or atlanta) instead of taking care of an ill family member I could easily put together a seminar and use that as the basis for videos. And I find it difficult to write without having first taught it. So (thinking out loud) I’m going to see if I an put together some sort of substitute. All in all I’m ‘done’ except for editing. But editing this density of text on this range of topics without practice ‘storytelling’ is actually very hard for me for reasons familiar to most authors – ‘to whom am I speaking’ will devolve into ‘myself’ and that is very hard for everyone other than me to understand. This problem has been dogging me since I left ukraine and the (wonderful) studio we had there.
