I’ve definitely got to do this again.
If you missed the #downwithrain live tweeting of a fictional event last night, I’ve published the whole messy narrative on Storify. Hope you enjoy it.
As the guiding tweeters, Michael Blake, Neika Lehman and I had a great time. We had a very rough outline for how we wanted the narrative to run, but everything else was up for grabs. The three of us had a Skype conversation going on behind the action, and it was a frenetic hour and a half as we strategised, plotted and incorporated tweets from others who were dropping in and getting involved. There’s great potential for this style of event to tell stories in a new way with anyone who wants to participate.
About 9.20pm I looked at the piece of quiche that was sitting near my screen, and figured I could get away with eating it.
