Sean Williams, Amanda Blair and I did a panel talk on story creation. All three of us had to make up a story on the spot. My part was to also draw stuff from the story on a whiteboard. In the end we didn’t finish the whole story but I think the audience got a good example of the creative process.
It was a great day. I had fun, got to hang with other like minded people and drink wine. Big thanks goes out to all the people that worked super hard to organise the event. People don’t realise how much work goes into putting on one of these events.
