A Daily Improvisation from Alan Levine: The Daily Try

Alan Levine has created a great online activity as part of his involvement with the UDG Agora project out of Guadalajara.

His site, The Daily Try, is a SPLOT, and presents a fun completion improv every single day. Even better, he uses a Twitter hashtag for each improv and aggregates the responses on his site. It's creative and it's collaborative. What's not to like?

Alan's on Daily Try #66 at the moment, but I thought it would be fun to share a few of the prompts that I enjoyed.

1. #agoratry5: Share Something Interesting from Openculture.com -- I shared a series of lectures by one of my favorite authors, Jorge Luis Borges.


2. #agoratry14: Explain your profession to your mom. Make it fit in a tweet. Good luck -- The kicker here is the part about explaining it so your mom will understand. My answer was, "I tell stories about teaching to help people teach more effectively."

3. #agoratry9: Google your own name. Find the most interesting doppleganger -- Well, thank goodness for a good doppleganger. It turns out I can really sing after all!

4. #agoratry63: Make a photo that metaphorically represents contrasting ideas --

There will be another Daily Try tomorrow. I encourage you to give it a whirl!
