In this remix, Shakespearean references teach us about tropes, i.e. the patterns/forms that our writing can take.

 

 

In this remix, Jane Austen's Emma falls into a time machine and falls out in southern California.

 

 One of the easiest ways to remix a narrative is to combine it with another narrative. Often this works best if the a newly selective narrative is rather distant from the "original" - as when 10 Things I Hate about You takes Shakespeare to a modern American high school. What elements of the story remain the same? The forms. Playing with forms in our remixes can introduce more than a bit of novelty into the story as it surprises, and perhaps engages, readers. We might be expected to resist stories that are at a distance from our experience, but I encourage you to just listen to other stories and pay attention to the patterns in them.

 

Let's keep remixing. Here's an easy sequence: copy and paste 2 of your classmates' narratives into a new wiki space, and, by turning your attention to the tropes, scripts, and archetypes you find in these narratives, create a remixed narrative. Experiment with the idea that narratives are often about what they leave out. Post the results to your wiki space, with links to the narratives you remixed.
