If meetings don't follow good practices, you hear:
  • The meetings are just a waste of time.
  • They just talk, go in circles, get nowhere.
  • Lots of good ideas get ignored.
Here is what to do about that

  • A baptism of art.  Total immersion

The sim is divided into 9 parcels.  Each parcel has a "media experience" which draws from music tracks and visuals from the vaults of Misprint Thursday's digital creative realms.  The presentation may be especially well-suited for couples.

2013 WRITE: What Second Life did for Colin Bell

What Second Life did for Colin Bell
"Stephen Dearsley's Summer of Love"

-
An Interview with Novelist Colin Bell in Second Life
-

How SL Can Be Life-Changing for Writers
-
Nazz Lane has written a fascinating interview with Wolfgang Glinka, whose RL novel will be published this year after he was discovered on Second Life.

The interview covers  life-changing effects Second Life has had on Wolfgang, including his developing interest in poetry and fiction, and his recovery from an unexpected illness. He also found out much about himself.

To read his fascinating SL experience, take a look at Nazz's excellent Lane's List site: 
An Interview with Novelist Colin Bell in Second Life

The novel is called Stephen Dearsley's Summer of Love and is by Colin Bell (AKA Wolfgang Glinka) and it will be published by Ward Wood Publishing, one of the active RL  publishing companies on Second Life, based at the Written Word on Cookie Island.
