25 Word Stories by Gaetan Pappalardo
We are getting really close to the finish line! This morning, I woke up to see we were at $9419... under $600 from the funding goal. It's all very exciting and I can't thank you enough. The past few days have been huge for us, and I'm hoping the momentum continues over the next 9 days.
And now for an update to the Storyteller Manual by Gaetan Pappalardo, writer, educator, and rocker extroardinaire.
(New Backers! The Storyteller Manual is a free pdf that you will receive, loaded with games and activities. You can also add a print version for $11 US / $13 Int)
Gaetan Pappalardo is the creator and author of Louie Licks and the Wicked Snakes, a story about a young boy who uses Rock and Roll to save the world. Armed with his Battle Axe (a 1962 Phoenix III guitar) he ends up on an adventure when a mega-fan from outer space tries to steal his thunder. It's a very original idea with great artwork by Amy English.
Of course, Gaetan is a rocker himself. He's also a third-grade teacher and writer for the George Lucas Educational Foundation, Edutopia.
I was thrilled to have Gaetan involved with the project. His contribution, 25 Word Stories, is an activity / exercise for writers (or aspiring writers). Not only did Gaetan provide the idea, but he also provided a ton of examples that will be found throughout the Storyteller Manual.
Thanks Gaetan! I love, love, love the boxer story.
And now, here's a challenge for everyone else: What is your 25 Word Story for our cover image?
