Title: This is probably not the best place to post this but... for Cakes people
Post by: Team Toshi Banana on March 14, 2010, 11:29:49 AM
Hi Project Cakes people,
I was thinking about what a great idea Project Cakes is and I wondered if we could do it with other books too. I'd love to do a collection of essays on the Hunger Games... it's such an interesting book (and it also doesn't already have essays written on it like Uglies does) and a lot of us seem to have read it. If anyone wants to, we could wait until Mockingjay comes out and then do them (hopefully we'd be done with "Cakes" by then) and make another site for them. (The Uglies Cakes website account has room for us to make another site with the same account, but a separate site if you want)
Anyway, just an idea, but it might be fun.

I think there's a podcast called Jabberjays so that's probably out... maybe it could be like "District *insert a district number*" or something? I like Quarter Quell... The Seam sounds like it could be a HG fan forum...

or maybe something along the lines of The Reaping, you know cuz it's like our ideas are tributes going out the the arena that is the internet.
I probably should spend more time thinking about what I'm going to write about...

Well, I was thinking about it and how we got Cakes as our name. Maybe if we tried to see a pattern and if not....go with something cool, like Jimmy's idea. I dunno, just throwing ideas out there. I really like all  the names you suggested. They're icy.

Maybe we could call it "The Capitol" or "Team Effie Trinket"

The Reaping sounds snappy and cool and dark all at the same time. Verrrry nice.

There's so many topics to write about! Lemme theenk.

I want to write a comparison on futuristic dystopias found in YA lit, including The Hunger Games, Uglies, and one other book that I am deciding on right now by digging through my bookshelf. Maze Runner? The Hermit Thrush Sings? Genesis?

Give me a bit... would this be okay?

I know I'm going to sound like a bubblehead, but what's Project Cakes? Sounds like a collection of essays? Could I possibly have the link to the site you were talking about?

Hmm actually instead of writing on the Capitol, I think I want to write about human's fascination with violence/killing, if that's okay?
