We talked about having a single forum dedicated to just the highlights of each Globe member (a la their introductory post, which I conveniently did not do a very good job writing), and I was struck with a flash of inspiration tonight:

The Lobby - Meet Lord Chamberlain's Men (and Women)

Anybody like?

I like, minus the "and Women" in brackets. Why not "Meet Lord Chamberlain's Women (and Men)" instead, seeing as, you know, there are more women here than men anyway. :P

1/11/2011 #93

good idea Patrick

and *gigglesnort* yeah, that woman thing is true! or it could be like....Women and Men. XD Or... "Humankind" hahha

I just realized I historically know nothing about Shakespeare. Good job Emily, why thank you self. I know that entire SEMESTER of Shakespeare really obviously affected you for the rest of your life.

*stumbles out*

Woah. I missed this. Great idea though, I like it! The only reason we don't have this thread already is because of the name.

And. Well. Hrmm. Do you guys think we should have a template, or a format and write whatever you want type thing?


Can't think... need help... grargggllssehhhhffpppt.

I like the idea of a template, or at least having a few requirements (name, where you're from, what you study/do, etc), but wiggle room for creativity seems appropriate.

1/20/2011 #98

Do you want to write one up? Or anyone else? PM me. Let's do this thing.

1/21/2011 #99

Oh wow.

RE: The Lobby

New Thread is live! Check it out!

In a nutshell, The Lobby is the un-official Globe register. If we get enough entries it could be a really cool resource. Like browsing for writers with similar interests, finding new stories, comparing writing goals, networking, ect.

Thoughts? Anyone want to go first? :p

1/22/2011 #101

Ah! Sweeeeeeet!

1/22/2011 #102

Woo! It's very cool, I'm excited to see what people say about themselves, XD

Alrighty so the Review Game's Writing Challenge Contest is on again! This month's prompt is "THe UN declaration of human rights"

(don't kill me!)

The deal is you have from now until midnight on the 7th (FP time) to write and post less than thousands words of prose or 500 words of poetry about something to do with the prompt. Then there's a week for everyone to read all the other entries and vote for their favourite two. Then the winning entry gets a depth review from all participants.

Why do it? Its a great way to get new people to read your stuff. Its a great way push your writing in directions it wouldn't have otherwise gone. And, it's a great way to read fresh new ideas and techniques every month.

go here to see the rules

go here to register (you know you want to)

: )
