100 Days of Writing V2 - IMPORTANT UPDATE!
« on: April 08, 2013, 10:49:28 PM »
*FOR THOSE NOT IN THE KNOW, READ THIS. FOR THOSE WHO ARE SKIP THIS AND KEEP BEING AWESOME!*

For those of you who don't know what the 100 Days of Writing is, it was a project I did from the summer of my junior year partway into my senior year. For 100 days straight, I would write at least 500 words on that particular day's theme. It's as simple as that! And by simple, I mean the concept was simple. It was actually really hard. But really fun! All of the stories are up on facebook, and can be accessed through the link at the top of the page!

*THAT IS ALL, NOOBIES. I LOVE YOU. WELCOME TO THE FOLD.*

Maybe there's a part of me that just likes pain, maybe it's the fact that I haven't actually gotten around to very much writing recently, or maybe it's the fact that I (at least, in my mind) have grown as a person and as a writer since the first time I did this, but I kind of want to do the 100 Days of Writing again! But differently this time! If I were to do this again, I would love to use themes that you guys suggest! It would still be a maximum of 100 themes, but I think it would be fun to write about ideas that other people have! It would be almost like a collaboration! Nothing too intricate, obviously - about as simple and up-to-interpretation as the ones from the previous list were - but wouldn't that be fun?

======

So that's a cut-up version of the note I put on facebook. Basically, I want you to give me 1-3 word, broad, up-to-interpretation themes so that I can write about them for 100 days straight. I want 100 themes, I currently have about 33. I would like to start this around the middle of next month, once classes are over for me.

Would anybody be interested in reading any of these? I'm thinking maybe making a blog for them would be a good idea rather than facebook noting them or popping them up here like last time.

ANYWAYS! If you have any ideas or questions, just pop them down below!

===

I found a blog, and I've got all of my themes that I need! Whoo! The Main Writing Blog will be where I post news about how projects are going (including when the 100 Days of Writing will start), and the 100 Days of Writing blog is just for the 100 Days of Writing.

Thanks, Merlan! :D I'll try the Cornered Animal One, and I'll definitely use the Foreigner one. I'd totally use the "Smells Like ____" one, too, but you (or someone else) should totally fill in the blank!

Also, does anyone know of a good blog host to use for this? -is a blog noob-

I totally would, but there would be too few people that would understand. Sorry!

EDIT: I've made it past 50 Themes! Woo!

Every drop leaves ripples.

Updated with my choices from Crypto's list. I got rid of a lot, just cuz I wanna give some more people a chance still. There were also "A lot" (well, a considerable amount, at least) that I had already written stuff about! I was especially surprised about "Concrete Jungle," because I actually started a short story series called that!

That being said, if I don't get more themes that I like in time, I'll be definitely coming back to this list ;)

Thanks again to everyone who is helping out with this!

EDIT: I'm thinking of maybe using a WordPress for this. Maybe something like this: http://wp-themes.com/sutra/?TB_iframe=true&width=1170&height=793 ?
