    Okay, fellow adventurers, I have made it through the winter holidays and a challenging stretch of “life is like that” stuff and am now back (mostly) on track. I’m attempting to post my video intro–I’ve tried following YouTube’s instructions for embedding a video and that hasn’t worked, so now I’m trying the “share” (as opposed to “embed”) option. I keep thinking that I’m getting the hang of this tech stuff that everyone else seems to zip through, but then I discover ugh, nope, takes me a whole lot longer to figure out than I think it should.

    Here’s to re-starting my adventure, getting to know about more of you along the way, and not throwing my computer against the wall when things don’t work the way I think they should…

    I love that subject. I can’t wait to learn more about it because I am trying to get better at using story to deliver a message.

    Thanks, Paulo – and yes, story can be wonderfully effective at delivering messages. People have a hard time remembering facts; much easier time remembering stories.

    Really excited to see the storytelling and effective writing resource you create for people. This will be an important subject for all the people in this community to learn from as well. Let us know where you’re at in your process and if you need help or feedback.

    Wonderful to see you on video too!!

    Thanks for sharing ย  ๐Ÿ˜€

    Great video Judy @judybgreenfire-creative-com! You look very comfortable and exude trust and confidence. I love that you’re focusing on interpretive writing – one of those fly-under-the-radar areas, no glamour or awards area we take for granted and makes a HUGE difference in a person’s experience of the park, museum, display, etc.

    How do people get into interpretive writing?

    Looking forward to seeing how this all evolves for you and the world you will draw us into!

    PS – Awesome dragons ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Loved this, Judy. I’m definitely a museum freak, but I’ve never thought about the writing behind all those exhibits I love. This is a class I’d definitely be interested in.

    Hi Judy,

    Your video turned out really well. I’d certainly be interested in your online course. You are a fabulous teacher and I’m sure I’d get a lot out of it.

    Hi, Lorraine –

    re: your question about how people get into interp writing–from a variety of starting points. There are college (undergrad and grad) programs for museum studies, tourism, natural and heritage resources, etc.; there are lots of folks who come in via love of topic or place and begin as volunteers, docents, and/or seasonal employees working at various sites; some come from other fields (I’m one of those), e.g., wildlife biology or art history or anthropology or education. Sometimes they’re interp writers because they want to be; more often, it’s part of their job (whether the job is paid or volunteer).

    Thanks, Debra – You’ll never look at exhibit labels (the text that accompanies the other stuff in exhibits) the same again! [bwahahahaha!]

    Thanks for the info Judy @judybgreenfire-creative-com. I can see that type of writing would be a great matching of liking to write, research and share really cool things. Will have to poke around and see if there are some local opportunities.
