Tomorrow I’m traveling from Colchester to Norwich on the 0823 @greateranglia service. I’m planning to use it as a little experiment in twitter narratives and would love you to join in!
The idea is simple. Over the hour of the journey in carriage C a story will emerge. The characters in that story will be based on the people in the carriage… But who they are , what they think and do, the journey they are on and so on will be utterly fictional and all of it drawn from twitter suggestions (using the hash tag #trainstory)
Essentially I plan to introduce – briefly – the people in the carriage at about 0825 using the hash tag #trainstory and then essentially anyone can join in…naming characters, describing them, putting words or thoughts into their mouths, providing the connections and so on. Together with their actual actions these twitter interactions will form the narrative of the story.
It may not work but that’s kind of the point. But if you get a chance do get involved – tweet your suggestions using the hash tag #trainstory and follow the thing as it does (or does not) develop.
I’ll post the results on the blog….and explain a bit more as to why I’m interested in this little experiment
