I am going to be very honest – I am currently struggling with the digital story. The problem is that, I can’t think of a story about me that I can tell. I have browsed everyone’s scripts and listened to everyone’s thoughts and ideas about the digital story, and it seems like everyone has a story that they are very eager to share with the world. I find that very amazing and impressive.
I’ve squeezed and rattled my brain juices trying to think of a story – I thought about my childhood, my home, other memories, etc, but nothing comes up. I don’t have a story to tell. There are fragments of memories and fleeting thoughts, but none of them have a particular theme; none of them blend together and paint a complete picture that is presentable. Unlike the stories that everyone has shared so far, my recollection of memories and thoughts don’t seem to have any conclusion, resolution, solution, ending, theme, topic, which are elements that are essential to a story. Right now my mind is like an indefinite mushy plop of primordial soup, waiting for some sort of defined and reasonable something to surface and take form.
