In the Martin & Sylvia: Saturdays! story, “Waiting for the Sparkle,” Martin is excited about writing an entire book on his own. But he doesn’t know how to get started!
One way to bring inspiration is to use these Narrative Cards. They ask four questions: Who is the story about? What is this character doing? Where is this character? When does this story happen?
You can use words or pictures to answer the questions, and then wait for the story to come!

He has been engaged in storytelling all of his adult life through painting, film-making, teaching and performing. Out of his experience as a Waldorf elementary class teacher and parent, he has developed a four step method of intuitive storytelling, which he now shares through workshops and through this website.
