Administrative Notes, Callouts, and Secrets

As the month of June rolls around, the empty spots in the Author List are starting to move closer and closer to the actual dates. I’ve considered just letting the dates go by and posting the dates that do have an author, but it does seem like veering from the original mission of the project: glances into 365 different residents’ days, and I’m not quite ready to let go yet.

That is why I’m calling you out.

The number one reason I’m hearing from hesitant authors seems to be that they don’t feel their writing skills are ‘good enough,’ or they don’t think they have an interesting enough story. Here’s a little secret– most of the writers who have contributed already are NOT established writers! In fact, before they were pressured into it by friends (or took the leap themselves), they were just as concerned about their writing skills as you are right now. If at any point you’ve thought about writing for the blog, go ahead and send in a sign-up email. If you have any questions or concerns, I’d be more than glad to talk them over with you.

You don’t need something spectacular or important to share. Two Three Six Five is about what happened during your day, and what it means to you. Don’t worry about coming up with an ‘interesting topic’, just talk about the past 24 hours.

You don’t need to be invited. You can sign up right now, for any open date.

You don’t need to write in English. As long as you provide a general translation of your post, we’d love to see posts in different languages.

You don’t need to worry about forgetting– I do my best to send out notecard reminders inworld ahead of time, and if you specify in your sign-up email that you would like an email reminder, I can do that too.

You don’t need to be a fabulous, thrilling SLebrity to write. I can guarantee that whatever you write about, there will be people who can connect to it and draw something from it. If you’re making excuses in your mind about why you can’t participate, chances are, you’re interested! Stop worrying and send that sign-up email.

There, I called you out. Now let’s see your 365 words.
