There's an art to telling a good story. A master storyteller has a good voice with lots of inflection.

Frisco is the big dog of the 3, lots of shopping and food, nice housing.......Little Elm is small but has good access to the lake, growing but limited in shopping....The Colony....well it's a hell hole....

Frisco should absorb the surrounding communities. The colony needs MASSIVE urban renewal however.

Here's a site with some of the usual "Colonites" throwing feces at each other online, clearly most are mentally ill with one "LeeintheColony" being a great reason why abortions should be legal at any age...

The Colony sucks and it's because of the people who live in it.....

Um, you guys, the Article "Tell Me About It" is about National Storytelling Festival at the Frisco Library. They aren't really asking you to compare these three cities. You see, the ideas is to read the story then post a comment related to the Art of Storytelling or the Frisco Public Library.

Epic fail with no link "The Colony Sucks"! http://www.inthecolony.com/ (although you are completely right).

Yes, we are absolutely stuck up, rich, trash living large in Phrisceaux. I'm rocking 5500 sq ft. We're wanting to create an insulating perimeter around that goodness. "The Colon" is not helping.

Let me start with Little Elm,(or more specifically Little Elm city offices), If you call them to turn on water or ask any other question regarding a house you purchased, the first question out of their mouth is: Is it a foreclosure, are you section 5, is it a rental? Wow, what ever happened to Good day, how may I help you. Oh you purchased, Welcome. Frisco is just a little stuck on itself. It is nice, has wonderful shopping,(little Elm is growing new shopping), does have people living there that care about the look of their homes on the outside,(yes they actually mow their lawns). The Colony obviously has an image problem, houses with bad foundations, people with bad foundations,(all they do is swear at each other).

We came from a similar community as Frisco, Sienna Plantation in the greater Houston area. Actually one of the first in our sectionm built our own home, proud of it, then the neighbors started moving in. Looked a lot like Barrack Obama, Nose up in the air all the time, Yunno the type? Always have to have the bigger pool, more expensive car, somethng like the Valley Girls in Southern California, HI Darling... or your new CC glasses look adhorable Sweetie. One big YUCK. We sold, move to Dallas, rented, research. We think Little Elm in the long run will have the best potential for being a NICE community to live in so we bought a home.... Time will tell
