A man spoke to himself the whole bus ride from Canterbury. Imagine the clamour if we all spoke our every thought out loud.
This led me to thinking it would be like a real life Twitter timeline. This led me to thinking that, actually, this could be possible. People could stand on stage reading out their timelines. Then the ideas kept rolling. To further the Twitter ‘experience’:
To RT someone, just repeat what the person before said.
To unfollow someone, push them off the stage.
To follow someone, drag them out of the audience.
People DMing each other stand in a corner, whispering.
To filter someone out, put a bag over their head.
Hashtags will be signified by banners (thanks Carli for that idea).
Genius or what?
Then I thought to myself, hmm, where will I get the actors from? Then I remembered I was starting uni next week. A performing arts uni.
I posted my idea on the Freshers Facebook page. I got a response of
LOOL! i love it! 😛 xxxx
This is good, yes?
If you want to follow me on Twitter, I’m @jogblog.
Last night (as you’ll know if you are a friend on Facebook or following me on Twitter where I have gone on and on and on and on and on about it) I had a story read out at a local event organised by White Rabbit.
It was held at The George Hotel, Ashford and the room was decked out in a 1950s Mad Hatter’s tea party style with the tables covered in flowers, playing cards, cucumber rolls and, most importantly, cakes.
The theme was ‘secrets’ and my story was read out by Gareth Brierley (who is one of the organisers, along with Bernadette Russell).
Gareth totally ‘got’ my story and read it out exactly (if not better) than it sounded in my head.
The other stories that were read out were so great, I was honoured to be a part of it. At the end, we were all given a copy of our stories, beautifully bound.
Thanks to Peggy at East Kent Live Lit for giving me the push to submit my story and thanks to White Rabbit for a fab evening.
