Story #4 - It's that time!
Hey all - Story #3 is out there and it seems to be making the rounds. It's already gotten 10 times the number of views than the first one. Great work, Collective!
So what are we going to do with Story #4? I don't have a big high concept idea for this one like the last two - but the manner of its composition will be a challenge in itself. This Thursday evening I'll be getting on the red-eye to go to Massachusetts for the weekend. Our fourth story will be a tale-in-transit.
As always, send me your submissions. Make them villainous.
But this time, also send me your ideas about what to do both inside and even outside of the story to make this one a different experience.
