Do you remember The Storytellers Blog? It was quite the phenomenon last Autumn. But then Christmas distracted everyone and through the long winter people's thoughts have been elsewhere (I'm being generous here, I know, as I don't want to admit everyone might have thought it was a crap idea).
Kanani posted the first story of 2008 earlier this month, so I thought it would be a good idea to try and kick start it again.
A couple of weeks ago, Pat from Past Imperfect asked about people's brief encounters with complete strangers where a moment was shared. It set me off thinking about a particular occurrence me nearly 10 years ago when travelling home, late at night.
So I thought I'd record my own Brief Encounter and post it on The Storytellers Blog.
With a bit of luck it might inspire you - yes you, stop looking at everyone else when I'm talking to you - don't think you can hide anonymously behind your computer screen - to record your own story and post it. If you're not already a member of The Storytellers Blog, send me an email and I'll give you the permissions needed so you can upload your tale.
OK, now you can pop over there and listen to my Brief Encounter.
