A twit for stories…

So I was listening to This American Life yesterday and they did a show where they crammed 20 stories into an hour. The radio show was inspired by a theater group in Chicago that has a similar theme to it. This concept of short story telling seems like a lot of fun to me.

So in true short story fashion(you can’t get much shorter than a twitter message), I twitted my intention to do a show with 20 stories. The response so far is excellent and I should have 20 stories soon enough. If you would like to participate here are the ground rules:

  • I need a 2-3minute mp3 or wav recording of you telling your story that loosely relates to casting-on (as in starting a project)
  • I need your name (as much as you would like to give), title (if it applies, mine would be head host of itsapurlman), and location (again, as much as you would like to give up… I would be Boston)
  • I need your permission to use the audio
  • I need it by January 1st ( will put the show together on January1st)

Please feel free to put all the info above in one recording and place it in my drop box. (I will edit out everything but the story, the rest is for housekeeping) If you cannot record on your own, try using the voicemail number 646-402-5686 x53198 (this will end up in the drop box.

If you have any questions, comments, or would like to let me you are on twitter (and are a listener of my show) feel free to leave a comment here or contact me at twitter. (better than email because everyone else who has the same question can see the answer).

    Oooooh I really want to do it. And I think I have a story.

    Sidenote: Scott Carrier, the guy who told the story about forgetting who a girl was, is one of my professors! I dropped stitches when I heard him on the show.

    I’ve got it all written and ready to record, but am having a few technical difficulties. But you can expect my story soon!
