What is your favorite Mardi Gras moment?
These prompts are centered around a specific topic. They follow the Legacy storytelling methodology. This series of questions allows a storyteller to answer simple questions first and then dig deeper into more complex questions and thought processes. These questions will not be suitable for all situations. When deciding what to ask and how to ask, be sure you are taking into account the abilities and needs of your storyteller.
