For some reason i had thought 04:30 to be a sensible time to get up.
Oops. Got up an hour earlier than I needed to.Documentally
At least I wasn’t the only one experiencing the dawn chorus.
And now heading on grown-up train to Cardiff for #openuniversity storymaking workshop with @Documentally #ou_mswjanematthews
A trip across one country and into another and it was a short walk to the venue.
Arrived for #ou_msw (@ Cardiff Central Railway Station (CDF) – @nationalrailenq w/ 4 others) [pic]:
Our hosts in Cardiff were @NTWTweets
@Documentally national theatre of Wales offices are in castle arcade off castle st, bang opposite castle entrance #ou_mswjanematthews
And this sign in the foyer of these offices explains why no one was able to find a building. #ou_msw
@horrocks_simon @documentally @StorymakingWalk ok to edit or not to edit #ou_msw Marenghi
The room soon filled to capacity and as ever there were refreshments to hand for those that needed them.

After about an hour of slides and talking it was time to head out and enjoy the sunshine.

Some folks took this as an opportunity to re-invent themselves.

My first go with Vine. My storytelling walk which has been really great fun #ou_msw Matheron
As we walked we snapped. For some this was the first time for sharing images with twitter.
All good stories need a dragon. A cake one is a good place to start #ou_mswMichelle Matheron
And any self respecting fairy tale dragon needs a castle to live in #ou_msw Matheron
I answered questions and gave tips as we walked.
Gate crashed #ou_msw @Documentally leading a guided tour into storytelling around and about Cardiff N Gardener
And all the while we soaked up the warmth of the great weather.
This is Wales on a sunny day. #ou_mswChristian (@Documentally)
Some folks were certainly inspired.

Uh oh it’s lunchtime, our dragon will be getting hungry. Look out! #ou_msw Matheron

I think we’re safe. These should keep a Welsh dragon happy until dinner time #theend #ou_mswMichelle Matheron
Issue with super useful apps for storytelling – even when you’re just playing – they EAT battery! My story is about to end! 🙁 #ou_mswOlaug N Gardener
Watch out #ou_msw storytellers the dragon is ready for some lunch!Michelle Matheron
People shared Photos, text, check-ins, audio and video clips.
Learning to tell stories with the OUA215 OU’s course on creative writing sounds a great place to start writing #ou_msw
But soon enough after a walk to the castle, down by the river and back to the office, it was time to part company.
@janematthews great meeting you at #ou_msw today. Wish I’d been there from the start! Do flick me an email & I’m send u that case study :)Olaug N Gardener
