Have updated the Creative Works portion of my wiki, so all are free to go and read/check out the latest works. You’re welcome to muck around inside too – play with the text if it’s there, transfer the text from PDF to the wiki if you want to, create your own works, etc.
The rationale for this is simple:
- I’d like to get user feedback as I’m writing. The best way for this is to use a wiki. I know most people haven’t used one before, so don’t worry – I’ll create a simple ‘lesson plan’ soon. (Alternatively, anyone who’s bored can create one for me. Whee for wikis!)
- User engagement = business strategy. By involving the audience, I’m (hopefully) engaging them, in the hope that this translates to establishing a solid fan base + customer loyalty. Will this work? It remains to be seen, but I’m hopeful, as you can tell from my repetition of the word in most of its forms.
- Last but not least, if mucking around in the dirt results in someone else becoming interested in writing, or at least learning about writing, then it’s one more starfish into the sea, no? 🙂
