The Power of Us

The internet is a 'place' where a lot of things can be done by "us", a bunch of individuals collaborating with someone's project. Sometimes for good causes, sometimes for personal causes, sometimes 'just because'.

Post Secret is a clear example: it could have been done without the internet but would have been slow and probably not a book yet.

Here is another case, the Smith Magazine forthcoming book, NOT QUITE WHAT I WAS PLANNING: Six-Word Memoirs By Writers Famous & Obscure

Based on the idea of a story in 6 words, they have been inviting people to write theirs, and with such a success that it will become a book. Check out this nice video made with some of the submissions...



My submission will not be in the book (I send it a bit too late) but I have no problem in sharing it with you. It can be consider a story or it could be an epitaph....


"Love dogs way more than people"

(And yeah, that's me...)
