We have a ‘Decrease World Suck’ project on our hands.
We are now going to try and unite to collaborate on a crowd-sourced magazine (that won’t be nerdfighter themed). If it’s successful, and actually makes any money, all proceeds will be going to charities that the group votes on. So that’s neat.
I’d recommend EVERYONE to go and like this page to keep posted about progress, etc. (More info about ATLAS below)
And if you were interested in participating in the creation process, there are individual groups for each project (there could a novel writing project as well, for anyone who’s interested)
Join this group if you’re interested in helping out with the magazine. You could be a computer game reviewer, political genius or an artistic wizard. We’ll be deciding on some themes/topics shortly, and your
And join this group if you’re interested in helping out with the collab novel. We’ll form teams, and organize local jams (maybe) where we establish a writing style/characters/plot, and then go crazy in Google Drive.
I’m super stoked at the idea of improving the world through pure creation. I think it’d have to be one of the greatest ways.
Even if you aren’t interested in contributing, I’d recommend liking the page out sheer curiosity. Could something like this work?
I’ve found suppliers and potential distributors, so maybe.
ATLAS is a project I’ve been working towards for many years now, and will be something that encompasses many fundraisers for charities in the future (hopefully), and I hope for Ink to be one of its foundations.
More info about it will be coming out soon, just know that you’re not joining some cult by signing up.
This project is open to non-nerdfighters as well. We’re just using nerdfighteria as a strong foundation, because it’s so pro-active, and this is the kind of thing I think they’d get into.
Nerdfighteria has had a pretty bad week, so here’s a little present. I decided to expand upon my TFIOS cover, and do the others in John’s core four.
It only took me about 3-4 days with little sleep to draw everything from scratch.
(Probably still WIP, knowing me)
Now back to working on my own book, I guess.
So people have tried to make it out like John’s dug his own grave with a post about why he wouldn’t write about adults.
Especially with the teen suicide post. I felt they massively misinterpreted the original post entirely. What I believe John was hinting at was that adults all have the same problems. They’ve gotten over the initial hurdles in life, and are now settled. This is something to aspire to in reality, however, in books, this is really. boring.
That’s all he’s saying. That the issues adults face, like tax and naming children, don’t compare to the dilemmas teenagers face trying to find their place in life. For the most part, adults are already in their place. They’ve made their bed. This isn’t a bad thing though, and nor is it applicable across the board. There are plenty of adults that are still evolving as people, as substantially as teenagers do.
Teenagers make for a more interesting read because everything matters so much to them. Everything is 100%. Whereas Adults grow accustomed to problems.
So if y’all could stop trying to find things to be angry about, and jumping down people’s throats, that’d be appreciated.
Remember this one?
