Tom knows how to write a story.

A month ago, I joined the Puttytribe, the community that grew up around Emilie Wapnick's Puttylike.com, and this past weekend, I participated in the very first 24 hr collaborative Puttython. My group of three, what we had in common was writing, so we wrote a round-robin story (though at least two of us prefer the weirdness of calling it an Exquisite Corpse), and it was so much fun. There was al OST no pressure except for the time-constraints, it was a brand new project for all three of us, and it was flipping amazing to see how three people who had never met could write a story 250 words at a time, and it feels consistent and logical.

I'm here almost in the middle of NaNoWriMo and I signed on to write more, and it went swimmingly. I loved it so much. If this is what school group projects were like when I was a kid, I never would have hated them so much!

I want more. When we're done with this story, we're going to figure out something to do with it--publication or some sort, even of just on our respective blogs--and I've already suggested that we could do more. And if these two don't have time or inclination, then I'm going to find other people in the Puttytribe, or in my SHUsters, or other friend groups. 

Because we could totally make a thing of this.
