Some storytellers become lost in repertoire.
Anxious debutantes, improving improvers, jaded duchesses, all suffer from the syndrome, at times.
And while it is essential to have a bag of stories when you hove too somewhere; you do not need all the stories of the universe in your pocket at the same time.
Try to tell one good story well.
You tell only one story at a time; so consider how best to tell and how best to dress it, in all its finery, for the world to see.

Your happy answer is yes.
Now, add another and you have a repertoire of two.
