May Project

I'm going to do a "Go!Animate" project. I don't really know what to make a story about I'm sure I'll come up with something though. Just need a bit of time to think. Maybe something about the playoffs. I need to come up with something though, I'll need to mes with the software first.

Collaborative writing cooments.

I thought this was a good idea, but it could have been executed better. Not sure how but a bit more thought beforehand to speed up the process would have been good. It was kind of cool to do this kind of work and see how everyone writes and stuff. The best grouping for collaborative writing seemed to be the fiction group, theres work together more than the childrens book or the personal narratives, the fiction ones have a nice blend of writing style that you see, but less defined in others. To sum it all up, it was a clever idea but needs work.

Collaberative project.

I don't know what I wanna write about. I guess pretty much anything but a collaboration of poetry, nobody likes poetry. I don't really have a preference towards anything. I don't really wanna do the children's book either because I don't want to have to draw a picture, being that I have no artistic skills at all. The work of fiction I wouldn't mind so much, but I don't know how well it'd work. Choose your own adventure would probably work because then your whole book doesn't necessarily have to work together. It can just be bits and pieces. Most of these options seem like they would need a lot of structure to work efficiently.

Future of social media focus writing

I don't think that social media is going to have sensors that replicate the 5 senses. I could however see some of that stuff going down, such as Google buying Micro$oft or Amazon buying Yahoo. I for one don't think that technology will ever be advanced enough to replicate the senses or create "second life" avatars. I do see the internet completely taking over TV and radio. I could see the plastic paper thing happening like a smart phone or something.
