storyworlds.jpgWhat if you discovered an entirely new world where you could tell stories in ways you've never done before? How might it change your experience with storytelling if you could make a story you imagine in your mind’s eye come ALIVE in a 3D emotional, immersive landscape for others to walk, meander, interact, fly or sit inside that story you have always wanted to tell? How might it change your relationship with your “readers” or inworld avatars if they had a chance to deeply immerse and engage themselves inside your storyline? What stories would YOU create for others to experience in virtual worlds like Second Life where the expression of your story would only be limited by your imagination?
