(I'm feeling better. This is a good thing.)

I've got seven single-spaced pages on my paper on storytelling so far. The interviews that I did were fantastic - my only regret is that I had to cut two people from my sample due to extreme time-lackage. (boffo9, mind if I grab you next round? And hey, childofscandal, that'll give you a chance to get in on the fun too. -g-) I'm not yet ready to talk about what I'm finding, especially as I can't talk details without the permission of the people who I interviewed, but if it weren't for time pressure I could easily write thirty pages just on what people have said so far. There's an incredible richness to the way that people talk and think about the way that they create stories. Everyone that I talked to is a really sophisticated storyteller, and even better, articulate about storytelling, which allows me to actually glimpse how they think about this stuff.

I think phase two is going to involve more interviews, followed up by direct observations of game sessions. Fun!
