Sameer Vasta, writing on his blog:
I’d like to host mini “coffee breaks” every Wednesday afternoon at 2:30pm where I’d bring together four people—ideally, people from various spheres of my life who don’t know each other—on a video call and we’d spend three minutes each (for a total coffee break of fifteen minutes) telling each other a story based on a prompt that I will circulate the day on the Tuesday.
Prompts may include things like:
Tell me a story about the best thing you’ve eaten this week. Tell me a story about a color that you noticed this week. Tell me a story about something that made you laugh this week. Tell me a story about something that made you cry this week. Tell me a story about an adventure that you had this week.
A few of my good friends have been having weekly video chats on Thursdays. I might try slipping a few of these into our conversation next time around.
