At present I'm working on my projects for the winter holidays, and since it will be the first for Disenchanted & Co. I have some neat surprises in store for all of you. One of these involves some unusual Victoriana I've been collecting and scanning all year, which I'll be converting into a free e-book and posting online. I also thought it might be fun if we could collaborate on something like a group project or a writing challenge.
A group project would be something that everyone who visits the blog would be welcome to contribute to, like a collection of our favorite recipes, crafts and/or personal traditions during the holidays. For something like this I'd be happy to collect your submissions, combine them with my own and turn it into a free e-book to distribute online.
For a writing challenge, we could pick a suitable topic (holiday memories, seasonal-themed fiction, etc.) decide on a deadline and then write our own pieces to be posted online. Once our pieces go live, I would then put up a central links list for everyone who participates to send my readers to your sites.
Whatever we might decide to do, my two stipulations are that the contributed content be original (no copyrighted material involved) and that it remain 100% free and accessible by anyone. Naturally everyone who contributes would retain all rights and resale options to their own portion of the project, with the understanding that the entire project itself will always remain free in any form.
Would you be interested in working with me on something like this, and if so, what would be your preference? If you have another, specific idea, what would you like to do? Let me know in comments.
