Short Story Challenge - Google Docs & National Novel Writing Month - YouTube

Short Story Challenge - Google Docs & National Novel Writing Month - YouTube | Using Google Drive in the classroom | Scoop.it

On 11/18, Google Docs invited authors Edan Lepucki, Tope Folarin, and Mike Curato, to participate in a short story writing challenge.

Gerald Carey's insight:

The authors used Google Hangout and students could use this too if they are outside the classroom.

Excellent resource.  Here is their final story in full: https://docs.google.com/document/u/1/d/1_mRk07Oi0LIo7JR3bs_3r0DivK37P8mLaxQVQtz3AIQ/pub
