What we hope to accomplish through this project:

To wind the proverbial threads of community tighter in the world of S&L
To create a work that everyone who shares a love for S&L and art in general to be proud of
To allow each individual participating a way to both grow through the experience and show how they have grown as writers and people in their S&L careers
To have some goddamn fun!


What this project is:
Most basically this project is a book, not a compelation as some people are thinking. However, because of the different authors and styles we have to incorporate we cannot make this a normal book, quite the contrary in fact. My vision is that we will have an 8 to 12 chapter piece of writing with a prologue setting the stage for where said chapters will take place. Each chapter will delve into a different theme of some sort possibly delving on one humans feelings, possibly on multiple, and quite possibly, no humans at all. This is my basic vision, and that brings me to...

Why the hell am I making this thread, why not just dive into the project?:

Well, theres a simple answer to that, I dont know what I have to work with in terms of people and their styles. This paticular thread is to gather ideas for how to make this book run as smoothly as possible up to its completion. I also must know who will participate. This is actually the most hipocritical thing I've said in a long time but I will have to screen authors, for as much as I want to inforce community I also want this project to work out well.

I ask everyone who wants to participate to post in this thread and then send me one of their pieces of writing {preferably prose, but I can deal with lyrical poetry} and I will probably accept you... you guys have no idea how much it pains me to do it this way but...

List of POTENTIAL Authors:


1. Dylan Doyle
2. Fred
3. Broken Bottles (name?)
4. Amplify
5. Jagstang
6. Matt
7. Nelson
8. Michael

{more spaces can be added}

List of feasible ideas:



Well, get suggesting!



In addition, there is also the S&L chatroom used as part of the main UG chat:

I repeat:
I ask everyone who wants to participate to post in this thread and then send me one of their pieces of writing {preferably prose, but I can deal with lyrical poetry} and I will probably accept you... you guys have no idea how much it pains me to do it this way but...

so no matter how much I want you or love your work I'm not just gonna give you a pass, I gotta keep something fair here.


Edit: I also want you all to know that this project will be completed, I dont care how long it takes or how many different revisions we have to do, or even how much work I myself have to put into it, it will be completed.

So I also need to know that you are dedicated to this thing and will be willing to stick with it (and that also means stay in S&L and UG) for the next 3 or more months. Those who believe they cannot fufill this have no buisiness being part

wow, I sound like a complete hardass, much

Eh, fuck this 'first mate' cocksucking shit TBH. Return through the quitter's entrance.

Is Steve on board with this? Is Antoine on board?

Anyway, pending exam results, I'm happy to contribute to this if people would like me to.

Does this qualify as lyrical prose?
If not I've got real prose I can send you.

^if you figure it out, esto should be the answer you are looking for. Math FTW.

And seriously, you guys need to start giving up some ideas for this not just sign up...
#28
Like i said in the suggestions thread; i wanna part in this!

Edit: Ok, i have an idea. How about we pick a topic, then we pick different writers to write from different points of view of the things involved (not necessarily people).

OK, I have a (shit, but there aren't many suggestions just now) suggestion, just to get us started. If all those who are going to write this just write a couple of paragraphs about who they are, what they do, preferrred such-and-such, just as an introduction for the whole book.

I'll think of something else for the book proper throughout the day.

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH Alice just edited my thread!!!

whew, that scared me for a moment, you are a very tricky chica. Anyway, take heed to the chat thing in my newly *Aliced* post, if I'm on UG (meh, I'm using invisible mode aint I?) I'll be in the S&L chat thing, so hit me up with any ideas you have or if you just wanna chill
