Story Crafter: A Twitter Chat for Writers

#StoryCrafter: A Twitter Chat for Writers @Writerology

As I mentioned in yesterdays post, one of my favourite Twitter chats to take part in is Story Crafter hosted by Faye Kirwin from @Writerology

You can find detailed information about the chat  and how it works at you're interested in using Twitter and taking part in twitter chats make sure you grab a copy of the file. 

The hashtag for the chat is #StoryCrafter and it starts at 8pm GMT on Sundays. Follow @Writerology and you'll see tweets like this one below to remind you about upcoming chats.

Sunday's topic was "A Writer's Search History" and asked the following questions:

Q1. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever researched for a story?

Q2. If someone looked at your search history, what would be their immediate response? Justified or not? ;)

Q3. What’s the most random research tangent you’ve ever gone off on?

Q4a. What’s the most eyebrow raising/incriminating thing you’ve researched (or might research) for a crime or thriller novel?

Q4b. Okay, what’s the most outlandish/alarming thing you’ve researched (or might research) for a fantasy or sci-fi novel?

Q4c. What’s the whackiest/weirdest thing you’ve researched (or might research) for a romance/contemporary novel?

Q5. Let’s have some funny Google auto-completes! Start asking Google a research question for your WIP and share what it says!

Here's a few of snippets from the chat:

This is a good example of why I enjoy this chat so much. Chatting with awesome people like @KSekouM

Then there was this bit discussing escaping from crocodiles...

Now need to come up with a scene where someone escapes from a crocodile...

And then there were little gems like this one:

The chat was great fun and branched off into loads of conversations. It was also good to know that I'm not the only one with questionable search history...
