How do words work?  

Isolde Drogan
Terrasylvan Villager

At today's practice, an interesting topic was brought up. How do ideas get spread out through the group and talked about? How do they get out there and then used and experimented with? How do we discuss our ideas and also accept the ideas of others? What can we do to promote a culture of talking about fencing? How can we make it a culture where everyone's ideas feel heard? Get the ideas flowing and the discussion going, sharing all kinds of different views on a topic. (Anyone who was there, did I miss anything?)

We talked about asking questions to keep momentum of a discussion going. We talked a bit about written discussions and verbal. So what are your thoughts on this? This idea of a talking culture and figuring out how words work.

Very well said, @isolde! There is a lot of potential and it starts with each one of us making our effort to change ourselves for the better. I think we can all start with what we're passionate about. When it comes to fencing what piques your interest? What sets sparks off in your soul? What about fencing would get you out of bed in the morning? We should all talk about those things first and get excited about them. We're all nerds who love swords. Why can't we talk about fencing the same way we talk about movies, board games, comics, fandoms, and books?

Remember: great is just good, but repeatable.
