Submissions to the First Session of the #Journaling Game Have Ended   1 comment

Good Morning, Friends of The Journaling Game! Our Resurrection of this community event has been an overwhelming success.

To show for your loving participation, we have a collection of twenty authors gathered for conversation, inspiration, and friendly interaction. Most impressed am I with the quality of the works at all stages–from phrase to submission to reading/comment. This bodes well for the longevity of the game.

Each time you participate at any level, you help to improve the world for writers in practice and hopeful writers who need guidance to find their voices.

With our eyes and hearts focused on building a strong artistic community that supercedes the artificial constructs acknowledging race, gender, socioeconomic standing, class, and even bogus educational notions, I encourage you to play again and with even greater gusto, each and every time. Let’s turn this into a rolling orgasm for the creative imagination/artist.

Please send phrases, write, submit, read, ruminate, comment lovingly, and retweet/share, and we’ll grow, cultivated by your deep interest.

Peace, Love, Joy, and iPhones

The Journaling Game   1 comment

For a long twitterwhile, The Journaling Game was the place for all types of writers to come together to test, explore, and hone their skills.

The space these authors carved into the Twittersphere and etched across the interwebz together was both cozy, intimate and effective, far-reaching. People from all over the world participated, submitting phrases, sharing work, and acting as readership.

A community was born, and this artistic colony based merit on heart, conscientious participation, and thoughtful interaction. Class notions dissolved to improve our cultural dialogue.

Life intervenes sometimes, tho, and the community had to go silent, at least at this venue, for awhile so that I, Nola Erus, the moderator of the game, could regroup to focus on pressing personal issues.

Tonight, I yearn that interaction I loved so much, and to turn yearn to glowing, vibrant activity, I open the doors to loyal gamers and new folks interested in playing.

The Journaling Game returns. I expect, as always, each new edition will be better than the edition before.
