“So… what’s with all the selfies?”
It’s true, my Instagram account has been more active lately. But in service of a great cause: The Shallow Project.
My friend Jordan and I are embarking on a quest this month. We’ve set out to tell stories using social media, flash fiction and dollar store-purchases. What’s the plot? You’ll have to follow along to find out — because since we’re also bringing bits of improv in, we’re going to surprise ourselves too.
But we’re pretty sure it’s going to be a lot of fun.
People love to rag on selfies almost as much as they love to take them. (Hopefully you all know where I stand on the matter.) Really, though, we’re operating in a great tradition here.
Want to follow along? I live here on Instagram; Jordan lives here. Track #jesterly on Instagram to stay on top of new posts, or just keep coming back to our website. More social media infrastructure to come, but for now, you can get in on the ground floor.
Or, as one commenter put it, “Still not sure what’s going on, but your green dragon looks lovely.”
Yes she does, thank you, and she’ll be very happy to hear that.
