Now that the blog's initial purpose has been fulfilled, I not sure where we should go from here. I assume you're interested in continuing the adventures of Cicada-Man, and possibly might enjoy other submissions of mine. Here are some options.
- I just keep posting chapters of Cicada-Man here until it's done. This isn't a bad option.
-We start a new 52 Week Project, but take steps to assure that we don't have such a high dropout level. I know some people who might be interested, and we could re-invite previous members of the blog. I'd probably have to repost the chapters all over again at intervals, though, since giving them in a huge block would likely scare people off. Also, we'd have to brainstorm on exactly what steps we'd take to increase the success ratio.
-I have ideas for a blog project titled "Feedback Guaranteed." It'd be a way for writers to post their work for critique from within the blog's community. In order to submit a candidate for the daily story or poem (under 3,000 words), you'd have to send the story to my email alongside a link to an substantial comment you posted on another person's entry. I'll post, I'll comment, people will comment, more stories will be submitted. Happiness abounds. Again, this would require reposting of Cicada-Man (plus, as this method is untested, it might go off not well enough or too well).
-I just realized we could combine some of these. We start another 52 Week Project or Feedback Guaranteed, I'll post old Cicada-Man stuff there while I write new Cicada-Man stuff here.
I'm anxious for your feedback! Words cannot express how much your companionship has meant to me in my writing life.
