Thanks to everyone who have sent their stories for Blank Space. 🙂 We owe you our sincere gratitude because we know how important your support is. We got a fairly good response to our earlier post, writers / bloggers from more than 10 countries got in touch with us and started sending their stories. Feeling excited about their interest. The milestone 100 is yet to be reached.
So we welcome entries 🙂
We need your support. Please contribute your stories. Your words can do wonders. We believe in you and in our aim. We cannot do it alone. mail : firstname.lastname@example.org
Publishing a book with contribution from 100 writers is an uphill task, especially on a debut. 🙂 We know it. Yet the purpose which is fuelling our efforts is “To make a difference and prove any difficulty is not impossible, it is just harder to achieve”
The Idea of Blank Space has its story, backed by a strong belief to inspire people by not by telling the famous fight backs of popular people. It’s about sharing the inspirations of people who are just like You, I or anyone who reads this. Who we can relate to ourselves easily.
For all who are new : Blank Space : Filled with inspiration is an anthology styled book to be written by 100 writers and will have 100 short stories of inspiring moments in life.
You can write about any topic / issue which can inspire people and leave a positive vibe to them. You can choose any genre fiction, semifiction, true stories or even a memoir as a story would do it.
What differences that this book can make?
Well, it is about the intensity. 100 people from around the globe will actually form a community of people around them who either needs inspiration or provides inspiration. It multiplies. Blank Space will do it. Actually the journey starts after publishing as we have plans to make short films, school plays, etc based on the stories in the future(of course with writer’s consent). But let’s focus on one step at a time.
A feel of your friend writing in a book is so special for anyone. A feel to say “I wrote a story in this book, which you can find online with this ISBN” will be a fantastic feel for someone who get published for the first time.
It is not as difficult to write a complete book and take the burden of publishing, sales and most importantly getting the readers. Nothing can give a writer a happiness than to reach more people to read his/her writing. Blank Space will make that happen.
Blank Space will be translated into other languages and published. So far, English and Tamil versions are confirmed. We will expand it to other languages if we get the right resources.
Writers can earn without any investment.
Where we stand now?
So far, more than 35+ writers have assured and started sending their entries. So miles to go to catch up 100+ entries and pick the best 100 out of them. Due date is extended for entries, till the official announcement from us about the close of entries.
The revenue generated by this initiative will be invested to inaugurate Study Centers in rural areas of Tamilnadu, India, where students can learn anything they wish to learn. SPECIALLY, WITHOUT ANY NEED TO WORRY ABOUT MONEY!
Our “Money-free Learning” model will enable them to take off the burden of fees and focus on what they wish to learn. We do not ask for any donations, we want to earn, and set an exemplary system that is self suffice. Blank Space will help us do it.
We need your support. Please contribute your stories. Your words can do wonders. We believe in you and in our aim.
