Group Info

What IS the Glory Be Project?
At the end of 2012 original founders, FuzzyHoser & vespera, 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 month's 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 or our Co-Founders DrippingWords and TwilightPoetess via a note, who'll be sure to set your mind at ease :heart:

Daily Inspiration

:bulletgreen: Hundred Themes Challenge; a brilliant helper if your own muses are letting you down. Many can be found, like here at The-Poetry-Cafe or 100ThemeWriters, the latter a group especially dedicated to the immense lists, with users uploading many of their own variations.

:bulletgreen: Six Word Stories are both fun and challenging; try to convey something in so little words - and if you're really keen, become a member of SixWordStories and take part in their many original prompts.

:bulletgreen: Haiku and Eastern Poetry is a wonderful area of writing to explore; and if you're really serious about it, we'd absolutely recommend keeping an eye on the-haiku-club & Haiku-Writers

:bulletgreen: Join, or create, your own Word War!

What is a Word War you may ask?
It's a friendly competition to see who can write the most in a set period of time. This can be over the course of a month with daily interval updates, or over the course of a few minutes with instant results. In a chatroom setting the game is fast paced fun with the timer set to a few minutes and participants compete in several rounds. Speed writing is key!

To discover more, and take a look at the instructions of the how-to, read thorns journal by clicking here

:bulletgreen: Creative Writing Now A great external link (which was featured on Oprah, no joke) of prompts.

:bulletgreen: Try your hand on (traditional) Forms and Structures; head over to the groups ProjectDFC and formfindsfunction for more information and slowly get your feet wet.

:bulletgreen: One Word.com; a great website which prompts you with a word and gives you 60 seconds to write about it.

"If you want to write, if you want to create, you must be the most sublime fool that God ever turned out and sent rambling. You must write every single day of your life. You must read dreadful dumb books and glorious books, and let them wrestle in beautiful fights inside your head, vulgar one moment, brilliant the next. You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads. I wish you a wrestling match with your Creative Muse that will last a lifetime. I wish craziness and foolishness and madness upon you. May you live with hysteria, and out of it make fine stories — science fiction or otherwise. Which finally means, may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world." ― Ray Bradbury
