I am still working on getting a storytelling show going in Eugene. I have contacted several venues, and have been turned down by several venues. There are still couple I haven't heard back from, and I don't expect to now until after the weekend. In a town where there are a lot of independent artists, musicians and others, I am surprised at how many cafes, small stage venues etc do not want to do shows at thier establishments. Or at least my kind of show. Several places have said they just do music. I may have to start widening my search circle. I wanted to have it closer to downtown so it would be easy for people to get to and if people are wandering around downtown looking for something to do we would be nice and convenient. I don't have a car, and quite frankly it is a pain in the ass to get around this town by bus. The people who brag about Eugene's bus system either never use it or have a car as backup. The most convenient place for anyone who takes a bus is downtown. And it doesn't hurt that I live a few blocks from downtown. So I am hoping one of the other venues email me back soon. I can't really afford to pay a lot for a place, so I may not get to be that choosy. We'll see.
I have come to the concluson that my workspace is not optimized enough. It feels crammed and I never have enough space to put everything. My goal for tomorrow is to reorganize my space. That means my whole room. I will rearrange furniture and reorganize my crap. Then i plan to get a couple of stories recorded and up on Soundcloud to share.
I guess that is the boring all. Hopefully more exciting stuff soon.
