Note / Introducing the Jenkins the Valet Writers Room
Jenkins the Valet is making good on the paradigm-shifting move made by the creators of the Bored Ape Yacht Club. The move? Issue intellectual property rights with each NFT purchase, which — overnight — laid the groundwork for a potential extended narrative universe. The Writers Room is the natural outgrowth of that decision on the part of the BAYC creators.
It’s been about two weeks since I bought my first Jenkins the Valet Writers Room ticket. It’s not even been a week since I decided that the ticket didn’t give me enough to work with, so I bought a Writers Room key.
This post will be the living document of my experience in The Writers Room. I plan to post my learnings, opinions, and creative process in this daily-updated article.
Over the coming weeks, I will be:
Learning the ins and outs of existing Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and Mutant Ape Yacht Club (MAYC) lore and existing stories.
Introducing my co-licensed apes and going through the process of building out their backstories and lore.
Participating in the submitting proposals, voting, and collaborating with other apes and the official author of the first Jenkins the Valet novel, Neil Strauss.
