DigiWriMo (Day 19): Home #digiwrimo

Digiwrimo: Home

This November, Dave and I are taking part in #digiwrimo. What’s #digiwrimo? It’s Digital Writing Month, “a 30-day adventure through the world of digital narrative and art”. Here’s what the website says (although we recommend you visit to read much, much more and get some great ideas):

Digital Writing Month is a (somewhat) insane month-long writing challenge, a wild ride through the world of digital writing, wherein those daring enough to participate wield keyboard and cursor to create digital projects of text, image, and/or sound in the thirty days of November. Modeled after the inspirational National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), DigiWriMo asks writers to be creative not just with their words, but also with other digital media —image, video, and sound — and with what those media can do. We will work to redefine “writing” in the digital, and not confine it only to words, but open up the possibilities of narrative and exposition within multimedia and multimodal projects. Where that “writing” resides, what it looks like, how it interacts with other works and authors, is entirely up to the wild imaginings of each DigiWriMo participant.

Day 19: Home

Digiwrimo: Home

I first begged them for a home,

But they said, “There’s no home for you here.”

Then I begged them for work,

But they said, “There’s no work for you here.”

Then I begged them for food,

But they said, “There’s no food for you here.”

Then I begged them for water,

But they said, “There’s no water for you here.”

Finally, my family begged them for a grave,

But still they said, “There’s no place for him here.”
