Rory's Story Cubes


I bought these a few years ago, played with them for a while then put them in a drawer and forgot about them. I found them again yesterday and I've started using them to improvise silly little stories in Welsh.

They are great fun and can be used for story telling in any language.

The reason I've started using them now is to help improve my Welsh improvisation skills. If I want to be able to talk naturally to the camera for my videos, I have to be much better at speaking extempore. Conversations are fine because you have the other person prompting you, but just speaking about what you can see around you and commenting on it is much harder. I don't want to start totally memorising scripts, but I also need some sort of structure to avoid vague waffling.
