My friend Maya Reynolds has an interesting blog today about Heroes' creator Tim Kring's Conspiracy for Good. CFG is a project that invites the audience to become part of a story with real world outcomes. As Maya calls it, it's transmedia--using multiple forms of media (video, text, blogs and participatory games) to tell a story. The next evolution of murder mystery dinner theater and the like, perhaps?

It's an interesting concept, and one that could impact the way stories are told in book format. We'll have to wait and see.

She just has the coolest blog! :) A very interesting concept! I've thought of something similar to this, using Dungeons and Dragons and then documenting the resulting plays and then tweeking them to fit my erotic imaginings. It could be a fun way to get the ball rolling, so to speak. hehe But then I don't want it to be fanfic either, so it would have to be done carefully. :)

Great blog, Sherrill! Love your new banner too, btw. :)

Colleen, she has an excellent blog! Very informative. She's going to be coming up in October to speak to my local RWA chapter--I can't wait!

Thanks. :)
