Abstract

This interdisciplinary article explores from a practitioner’s perspective ways in which developments in Web 2.0 technology, in combination with mobile phones, facilitate and encourage new methods of archiving creative process that result in new experimental forms of writing. It takes the author’s use of Twitter as a case study. The research purpose is to consider the benefits of developments in new technology to creative writing practitioners. An aim will be to reach a new theoretical position on how social media and mobile technology can aid and generate creativity by enabling archiving of the creative process to be an ongoing, live, dynamic experience.
