Over the last week I’ve been writing a story on twitter with the help of friends and strangers. You might remember this from the last time I did one, but basically it’s a collaborative effort where I provide the ongoing story and the aforementioned friends and strangers vote on what direction it goes.
I genuinely really enjoy doing these. One, because it means I’m ensuring I write every day, even if it is just in two hundred and eighty character bursts. And, two, because it also makes the writing process a lot less isolated. It’s amazing to me that the writers room for this little story was spread out over who knows how many spaces and countries. It truly shows the brighter side of the internet. So, to everyone who voted and followed along, thank you.
In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I’ve also started a new twitter page where I can continue these stories indefinitely. Feel free to click the previous link to follow along and participate, the more voters the better as that will ensure the story doesn’t stop.
In the meantime you can also click the link below to read the twitter story; The Words in the Walls.
Remember, we live in a time where at any point you can type ‘red panda’ into google then see a bunch of pictures of them, and if that’s not magic I don’t know what is.
