What IS the Glory Be Project?
At the end of 2012 original founders, FuzzyHoser
, were just so gosh-darn-tootin'-excited that they had survived past 2012 (and the world ending, obviously) that they decided to celebrate by writing every day. So excited, in fact, they invited the internets to celebrate with them in some good ol' daily writing.
Now, obviously, 365 days in a row is a bit much to ask, but you can do... 320 at least, right? We just know you can. What are we talking about?
First off, we are not talking about writing a brilliant poem every day. That would be terribly exhausting (but if you are able to, we salute you!) But certainly you can write a haiku (however serious or not serious), write a twitter poem, put down a fragment idea (also, we'd like to point out, fragments ARE PUBLISHABLE to the group), a six word story, etc. Why do this?
Well, for starters, each of us that's serious about writing, whether it be with the goal of publication or not, should be making a point of writing every day. At the end of the year, you and us (and you and you and you) will each have a little mini manuscript of daily thoughts, observations, abstract commentary, jokes, snapshots, etc of a year in your life. Glory Be! And then we will trade using our Swap Meet! (Though, to clarify this, there is no obligation to trade with any of us or the whole group or anybody in particular. Whichever deviant wants to trade with whichever deviant does this, can.)How the Group Functions
If you sit down to write a Glory Be! entry and it becomes a whole poem - AWESOME - if not, that's okay, too. You sat down and you wrote. Mission accomplished. We will salute you for this, too.
BUT if you do come up with a poem/fragment/etc. once or twice a week that you want to share with the group, please feel free to submit it here! The current years' folder is open for SUBMISSIONS up to two a week. All we ask is that you help motivate others by putting a note in your commentary back to the group! Questions?
Do you still have questions or something else you'd like explained? Get in touch with our current Founder Lady-Yume
