Joining Weight Watchers

Who would have thought I would be blogging about this defining moment in my life and through digital storytelling!?  But this is what this #etmooc challenge has got me doing!  That and the fact that I am willing to be open and just try!  It just might be a lesson in life – Be Open to New Things and Just Try It!

So the next digital storytelling exercise I decided to try was the Five Card Flicr Story. It is based on the Five Card Nancy card game by Scott McLeod, and is an exercise in visual storytelling. You are dealt five random images from a Flickr tag and you pick one to be in your story. In the next four rounds you again choose from 5 new random photos with the idea of building a coherent storyline from your five photos.  I picked my pictures and the story just came.  I don’t know how- I guess I had a reaction or thought about each picture and strung them all together.  Here is the link I visited to get started:

Again, I have no idea if I did it right. Is there even a right way of doing these things?  I just had fun and told my story.  I enjoyed the process and surprised myself by my own learning.  That’s the teacher I want to be…

Here’s my story if  you feel like checking it out:

    Bravo! Thanks for sharing.

    A wonderful story, with a lesson that we all should take to heart. Each of us must stop putting ourselves last; more importantly, each of us must not allow our significant others put themselves last, as well.
