This is the home page of Testcut, the first ever real-time hashtag novel, where the creation process unfolds in discrete segments.
Cuts are formed as I write and post groups of 10 tweets, eventually to be collected as a composite documentary of the creative process.
If you think you know something about the characters, think again. This is really a creation of scenarios that lead to limitless possibilities. A puzzle unfolding in real time.
In a practical sense, start with CUT A for the current version of the project, as a semi coherent narrative.
Proceed forward, knowing (as with Pulp Fiction) that it is out of narrative sequence and intentionally setting up dramatic flashpoints. Points of view are constantly shifting. Not sure how many characters. Setting is Tulum, Vegas?
Go back to CUTs 1-12 for an unfolding of the initial creation process. The process is similar to uncovering Jimi Hendrix demoing versions of what later became Voodoo Child, Long Hot Summer Night, 1983, in a hotel room with an acoustic, under the influence of love.
