NTPRS 2015 Carol Gaab Rules for Story-asking: 1. Allow yourself the freedom to abandon a story. Abandonment is NOT failure; it is sound judgment in many cases.
2. Variety is the key! Brains crave novelty.
3. Stop trying to be funny. Nobody is funny all of the time.
4. “Successful” stories come in all shapes & sizes!
5. Not all L2 structures are great fits for story-asking.
