Story jumpers at digiwrimo

This was one of the coolest and oddest collaborations that went on during Digital Writing Month: the Storyjumpers Project. It is an “exquisite corpse” story in which a story unfolded piece by piece across 26 blogs over 30 days.

Thankfully, our friends at the Vermont Young Writers Project did an amazing and entertaining summary of the entire shebang because following the story from blog to blog got a little … eh .. messy as time went on and twists and turns became a regular facet. Then, they wrote the last chapter before November 30 ended.

And then there was also the Thinglink version that Wendy put into place to track the story:

I’d be interested in pulling the entire story together into one single document to share. That’s for another day. Right now, all of the text runs about 50 pages in a Google Document.

And to think … it all started with a single Tweet ….

Peace (in the story unfolded in the world),
