Group Writing Projects


Permission by:
I posted a similar question on Blog Catalog today, but thought I should also ask this here. In the past month I have contributed to three group writing projects. These have been a lot of fun and I would recommend anyone who loves to write to keep an eye open for similar challenges. My article posted here on December 22nd was prompted by a group writing project at Writers Island.

Also, Robert Hruzek at Middle Zone Musings prompted his readers to write about what they learned from blogging in 2007. Here is the link to my contribution, but there are several other great ones up and more to come.

This one that I wrote on The Giving Hands just posted today.

They do generate some good publicity for the originating site, but after taking part in three of them, I am excited because they give you a fresh perspective to write from.

I have thought about starting one on my site, but have not come up with a good enough theme yet. I think because you are involving many other people in the project, the theme has to be a strong one. If any of you come up with good ideas for one of your own, one that stimulates me to write about, I’d contribute to your project.

What do you think of these kinds of projects? Would you contribute or start on of your own?

I would suggest a group-writing project that blends in nicely with your blog — something along the lines of “healthy living”. It is a broad subject, no doubt, that that adds more variety and spices to the kind of posts that you will be reading! 😀

With my “Save the Ocean” group-writing project, for example, the main theme is to save the oceans, but aren’t you surprised to read about what THAT means to different people? 😀

And that makes hosting and participating even more enjoyable 😀

Hi Will I think it is an excellent idea, but alas I can’t write that well, am very intimidated by some of the writers I am finding through reading various blogs. Oh and by the way I have an award for you on my blog.

Hey Bob – I’ll be right over to see what I could possibly have done to deserve an award! Thanks!

I don’t really know if I am a good writer or not, but I love to write, have fun doing it, and I guess that is the most important thing!

Hi Will, interesting concept that writing project. If I get Eureka one day – never know. Thanks for sharing. Anna 🙂

Very nice idea…I would really love to join, but the problem is I am not good at writing. I like reading and have my own opinion, but not good to share it through writing.
