Frrrrriday Rrrrroundup! #66: 50-for-50 edition

This post is #33 in a series of 50 dedicated to the art and life of writing, in support of the 50 for 50 Project to benefit WriteGirl. If you like it, or if you think it could have been improved by a better writing education for its author, please give generously. And pass it on.

Marion Agnew posted this absolutely gorgeous piece about the need to turn art outwards, and how the 50-for-50 Project fits into that scheme. Of all of the posts written so far, probably the piece that best expresses why I was moved to go for it with 50-for-50.

I love it when the Industry people join in on the action. Amanda, a former agency type who hails from the East Coast but has settled in with us crazies out here, gives a lovely plug for 50-for-50.

If you have not yet beheld the six-handed awesomeness of 3x3x365, Thursday’s post, which includes a loving token from Amy McCracken, is a really good reason to start. (But please, do NOT miss Wednesday’s pig brains.)

Nissa Sompels, a pipsqueak of not even 30 years, contributes to 50-for-50, then muses on what birthdays might best be used for.

In other news, we made the Friday Chicken! And as an example of the very best kind of good stuff!

Did you post about 50-for-50 and did I miss it? I would not be surprised, the days pass by in a hazy blur of frenzied activity, internet-related and otherwise. Please do let me know! I would love to highlight it here!

    1. I did miss it! Thanks, Maureen—it’ll go up in next week’s thingamaroundup.

      And I owe you a PSA. Ugh. Me of the Past really had no idea what kind of tomfoolery it was getting Me of the Future signed up for.

  1. Thanks for the mention! The elves are hard at work on my 30th (I hope). And I love 3x3x365. What a great way to stay connected with friends in different cities.

  2. Hey, Colleen, I’m glad you liked it. Since I turned 50 last November I’ve started realizing, with SHOCK, that I’m one of the “grown-ups” now. You have grabbed onto that mantle with both hands, and this project is a perfect match for you. I have no doubt of its success!!

    And thanks for pointing to the other sites, too. Some days, this-here Internet-thingy is just a big-ass party of people connecting and helping each other.
