I chose this for my topic because I’ve noticed that I have a tendency to ask for help when it comes to my writing, whether it’s for a personal project or for a school assignment. I have a number of friends and family who are hours and hours away from me, especially when I’m in school.
That’s where social media comes in. Instead of sending long-winded texts that could jack up our data usage, I’ll post my ideas or prompts or whatever to Facebook or tumblr. That way, multiple people can see and respond to it whenever they’re on the site. The reason I do this is because I like feedback and I’m (almost) always curious to see what people think and how those can start another train of thought.
My idea is to explain the thoughts that go through my head when I see these responses, and how it could/will affect the progression of that story and/or assignment. This does include taking screenshots of the post and the following replies, but I’ll probably black out names unless it’s a specific person (for example, family members) or unless they’ve told me that it’s okay.
