This past February 4th, Neil Gaiman and Blackberry kicked off the joint #KeepMoving venture.

My Thoughts
I always amazed with author’s inspiration for their stories. They said it can be from anywhere but sometimes I wonder how they create words in to become a story from the inspiration they get. Neil Gaiman is one of authors who keep amazed me, including in his collaboration with BlackBerry. How can he created short stories from limited Twitter characters sent by his followers is beyond my imagination.

My favorites are October and December stories. I love October story because it’s so sweet and can be another good twist of genie story

And love December story because I love @neilhimself follower’s tweet and how he created it into an inspiring short story.
But I also love other stories, especially February, because there is Indonesia folklore similar to this story.
And July, I like the idea of igloo of books
Aside the stories, another best part of this short stories is the art image, they are awesome. And the best of the best part is it’s free, you can download it here: http://keepmoving.blackberry.com/desktop/en/us/ambassador/neil-gaiman.html
Result: 4 of 5 stars
