Everyday for 365 days, a different person will write an entry about their experience that day. It doesn't have to be about a specific topic, the key is that it somehow relates to what is happening in the world that day and how it relates to them. By doing so, starting from January 1 to December 31 of 2010, we will have a snapshot of the entire year, told from the perspective of 365 individual voices.
365 days will be made available and volunteers from across the country will be able to pick a date of their choice (most likely via a wiki). There is no guarantee that any day will be better than others, because no one can predict the future. Regardless if the selected day in 2010 brings something newsworthy, everyone has a short story to tell that will help create the experience of living through a year in this country.
Each author will write a 250 word reflection which will be posted to "lifestreaming" site Posterous. Posterous.com was selected over a typical blog or website because of its simplicity and its ability to distribute content across all the major social networks.
$150-200 dollars of this project will be used for designing a logo using Crowdspring.com; the remaining funds will go towards printing the actual book. All promotion will be done with unpaid means.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or are interested in being an author.
