10 cent stories, typewritten while you wait
For two years I've been busking with a typewriter and a sign that says "10 cent stories typewritten while you wait". Just today I got an essay about it published in the toast and I've begun putting all of my stories and pictures of people I wrote them for on twitter @10centstories or #10centstories

This is great! It reminds me of the 24-hour play festivals I've taken part in, only even faster and with someone standing RIGHT THERE. The actual typewriter adds another dimension.

I’ve written stories about Elsa and Spiderman teaming up

I've had to make up pretty much the exact same story!

I remember when, back in the day, stories were a nickel.

Seriously, this is terrific. Do you make carbon copies of the stories (would love to read a bock of your stories)?
