I just finished clearing out my RSS feed, left a few comments, and feel a general sense of “being caught up.” Not quite sure what to do next, I decided to quickly try out a random assignment from #ds106. It looks like this:
Write a sentence (preferably somewhat coherent, yet on the nonsensical side), a poem, or a quick story using the titles of songs you have in your Windows Media Player (iTunes may possibly work as well). Print the screen. Paste it in Microsoft Paint (or some higher-end equivalent). Save it, upload it, and share. If you could even respond to the one I originally created as a challenge (possibly even embed it as a comment on that blog entry), that would be even cooler.
This was a fun little reminder that there are stories and poems everywhere we look. We just have to look. Looking forward to trying this with some classes soon, but in the meantime what is this story about to you? I tried to deal with plot, character, setting etc…Maybe after reading your comments. I can turn it into a short story or a chapter in my memoir.
