Project Cakes: Essays on Uglies by Readers and Fans!
« on: February 16, 2010, 04:30:53 AM »

So a few people know that we (Me, JimmyLost, Emma-la, MikeMagpuyo, Tabac Vie, and levi_ann, I think) have started this project... it's called Project Cakes. Here's what it is, basically:

Quote
We are a group of Uglies fans who met on Scott Westerfeld's forum. After reading Mind Rain, we decided that it would be icy to write our own Uglies essays- and post them on a website! So we created Cakes, naming it after Scott's joke about writing a fifth Uglies book.
(So basically we're writing our own essays that have something to do with the Uglies series, and posting them on a website)

Here's the website: http://ugliescakes.weebly.com/

If you'd like to join the project, you can contact us here: http://ugliescakes.weebly.com/contact-us.html or just post something here! We're in the process of writing the essays now, and we'll always welcome more essay-writers!
If you want to join, write a little statement about yourself so we can put it on the site! (You can also say what your essay will be about, too) Hope you join!

Thanks,
The Cakes Team (Team Toshi Banana, JimmyLost, Emma-la, MikeMagpuyo, Tabac Vie, and levi_ann)

Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

That sounds cool!
I keep thinking someone should do the commentary/announcer for a hover-ball game :D That could be something to add for fun too :D

I think I'm going to write about unesscesary sacrifices that Tally made, and how they hurt her. Probably.

I was going to write about the Pretties operation and how it would impact the society today. Basically it would also include some of the arguements put on the thread maybe being pretty minded wouldn't be such a bad idea. The pros and cons of a society this way.
