Distance and relationships
This post is based on a Writing101 prompt: let a map be your muse.
First, I want to say that I was impressed with Mr. Plimpton’s Revenge, a “Google Maps essay” as the author puts it. I love cross-media projects and digital storytelling in general, and this one was inspiring. The map isn’t necessary to the story but it really adds to it by rooting it in reality. As soon as I saw it, I knew I had to use the same medium, so I decided to write about my friends from France and other countries – only 10 friends for now.
A weekly feature on travel and languages
This post is based on a Blogging101 prompt: Develop a regular feature for your blog.
When I read today’s prompt, I didn’t intend to use it. I already had a regular feature of some sort, my weekly reports, and couldn’t imagine starting a new one. Joining a weekly challenge, sure, but I had a hard time coming up with an idea that would be my own. Eventually, though, an idea hit me and I just couldn’t imagine not using it! I won’t start today as it isn’t the right day of the week, but I can start laying out my plan for Travel Tuesdays.
