an unsupressable urge. So indugle in my fantasies, and plow your way through my memories, greatly appreciated you will be,

proJect pinK

Artwork by =grimcinder


proJect pinK (working title) is a brainchild of yours truly. It is meant to be experimental, no fluff, witty and candid.

Since it's called proJect pinK, obviously it's for da chicks and babes only. I've absolutely nothing against bimbos, sluts and bitches, so you are more than welcomed to participate as long as you can write (with substance of course).

If you are a female/lady/woman/girl blogger, all you have to do is submit your best, sauciest, scandalous, sexiest, juciest, most tear-jerking, most emotional, most unbelievable blog entries to projectpink@mail.com. I would need about 150-200 entries, so do spread this news around to any female blogger friend of yours.

The success of this project depends on the quality of the submissions. Here's a mini-guide on what proJect pinK is looking for.

What's Sizzling:
- eye-openers
- heartstrings tugger
- real life accounts
- love, lies and lingerie
- confessions
- secrets
- men
- unique stories
- dating
- struggles
- death
- autobiographies
-.....and other irresistible content.

What's Fizzling
- days of your lives (yawn..)
- run-of-the-mill stories (real or otherwise)
- copyrighted materials
- slanderous and libelous topics
- movies/music reviews
- unoriginal materials
- ...and any other sleep-inducing topics

What's the criteria? Initially I had a list of 1,698 terms and conditions, but then I realized I couldn't remember all of them so I decided to trash them all away.

Criteria for submissions
- 2,500-5,000 words per entry
- multiple submissions are ok
- submissions from other countries are welcome (as long as they can prove their gender)
- check for grammar and spelling mistakes
- use font Arial, size 12: double spacing
- give an attention-grabbing title to your entry
- illustrations submitted must be original (or the copyright owners will sue the pants off ya)
- save your entries in a word document, together with a cover page including these details:
(1) real name + blog name (if any)
(2) age
(3) your blog's URL
(4) contact number
(5) email address

and finally

(6) a short paragraph of about 600 words on what you think about MEN

This shall be a mini-prologue that leads to your entry.

By now, it should be evident that proJect pinK is an anthology of stories from babes who blog. As this is an experimental project, I am not expecting to make money out of this.

But if miraculously, there is a high demand because of the writers' collective marketing efforts on their own blogs, and to their friends - we might just have that winning formula. :)

proJect pinK will come with a handy dandy marketing e-book to help all contributors sell and market this unique paperback. Contributors will be remunerated by the number of books sold (don't ask me how much 'cos i don't know yet. besides, that's a career limiting move.).

Limited editions will be produced - so that it will be highly exclusive.

Will advise on the price once the project nears completion. For now, you can start spreading the word, or place an advanced order for the book by sending an email to proJect pinK.

By the way, this is an authentic project, nothing like the Contemporary Dictionary of The Vulgar Tongue.

I know for a fact that you girls are good. Let's try and see if we can make our dreams come true.


ADDENDUM


This book will only list your stories, your blogger nick as well as your blog URL.

It will not feature your real name, or personal details whatsoever. I need some of these details for my own file so that if this book really takes off - I can PAY you! But if it bothers you so much, you can still choose not to reveal your true identity.

What you see in the book will be what appears on your blog! :)

What about us, MEN?!

Boo!

I call for proJect ermm...Beer!

Good luck for ya little brainchild! Hope it gives us some really deep insight into you, ladies!

A.Ball.of.Yarn said...

i find it rather encouraging you take the time now and then to come up with stuff like this. puts those of us who claim to love writing but never really challenge themselves or spillover their imagination to shame.:)

Mickell said...

I suppose erotic sex stories would be welcomed ;p

Ole' Wolvie said...

As people in F.R.I.E.N.D.S would say:

Oh... my... XYZ...

busybee said...

hmmn... good marketing idea, but I don't think I like the limelight in things that personal to me. Thanks for that thought. All the best. :)

Prince Romp said...

Project pink exclusively brainchild by yours truly...

mel said...

This is kinda outta my league. Good luck, looking forward to an autograph session at Kino. BTW, u do know that somewhere, somehow some crazy GUY is gonna try to sneak in something pretending to be a girl. Hey, if it can happen in a chatroom, it can happen anywhere.

Take it easy

Aristocrat said...

One was going to rant on the same thing as luvphobia. What about the men?

Perhaps we should all start writing under female psuedonyms and get in line for a bit of cash ha.

May your projectpink score flying colours with the dull public.

Yours truly
Aristocrat

Anonymous_X said...

Mrs/Ms-Doubtfire syndrome, huh? :-\ Great project, though. The fact that it's limited only to the fairer sex is already an appealing point by itself.

aurora said...

This sounds real tempting...

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

Thanks for the excited responses! I was deliberating about the men - and as much as i like it to be a dual-sex book, it does not seem compelling as one that is entirely conmpiled by women. project blue- for the MEN!- will be second phase if project pink takes off.

and i would predict it will follow soon after project pink - so that we keep the heat on.

but let me learn the mistakes for project pink first - so that i can refine it when it comes to project blue.

so if you men wanna contribute, start sieving out some of your short stories or blog entries. Rules are as follows - but probably instead of writing about MEN, pls air your grievances about women, heartbreaks, revenge tactics, abuse etc.

I may need them very soon... :)

Richard said...

Good for you! Actually, this is more in keeping with my impression of you: an organizer and doer.

Hope things work out well for you.

(Mind you, the topic is of little interest to me, but, then again, I am not exactly typical. You are very likely much more in touch with the pulse of the people, whereas I am, as usual, fairly alone.)

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

Seriously, I am not even sure what the girls will submit. May be nothing like none of the topics above, but is an excellent read as well. We'll see how it goes.:)

DelorumRex said...

I have taken an informal poll.. and we all love your pink.

(I don't know exactly what that means, but it can't be all bad.)

Now do not be suprised if I use less than honerable ways to drive traffic your way.. it is just what I do.

and I feel I shoudl ask.. is ther eany chance that we will get a naughty video with you in it, at anytoem in the future? With all the perverts out there, even the roumor of one should give you say 12,000,000 hits a day as long as we can keep you in the perverted public eye.

You gotta love perverts, they are just so gulible..
Love you in a purely evil sort of way,
DeRex

pet fanatic said...

Men can be Angels too....

since you're a poet alike.

For your reading pleasure.
cheers....
-------------------------
In the world around us

Real-life angels are doing the things they do

And bringing more smiles to the world around them

Real-life angels build bridges instead of walls

They don’t play hide and seek with the truth

They do whatever they can to help you

Real-life angels understand difficulties

And always give the benefit of the doubt

They don’t hold others up to the standards

They can’t live by themselves

Real-life angels are what inner beauty is all about

Real-life angels don’t hold things against you

The only thing they hold. is you

They take your hand in theirs

When you could use a little reassurance

They walk beside you when you could do with

A little guidance and direction in your life

And they support you in your attempts to do what is right

Real-life angels multiply your smiles

And add to your integrity

They make you feel like

You are somebody who matters

Then they quietly prove to you

How beautiful and true that feeling really is

I have come across an angel like this YOU

And I am one of the luckiest people of all

You are that someone in my life

That is wonderfully like an angel

I felt it important to let you know

It’s the nicest compliment one could ever give

Thank you, dear friend, for always being there for me!

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

DeRex: What informal poll? Got me curious...hmmm. Tell me more!

As for the video, nah. Tammy's got the market. I will just stick with books. :)

Thanks for all the shameless advertising! hahaha

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

Petfanatic: Nice poem! Wrote it yourself? Not for me RIGHT? hahaha....

DelorumRex said...

maybe I did make that video? Maybe it was uploaded to youtube.com or would that make it mytube.com?
Perhpas the title of the video is code for something.. somthing that has to do with delorumrex?

Maybe they were all students of NYP? Maybe it was in a park.. in Boutique Badcock park?
UNtil my name goes down in infamy.. or I have 7 go down on me.. I will not give up the cause.. and neither should you. :)

By the by, I am proud to promote your pink in any way I can.
:)
Keep on being who you is..

DelorumRex said...

Hey next project should be "Project Blew" (not blue) all of us men could come tell stories about getting oral in taxis as they drove through the streets of singapore.. os somthing to that effect.

DelorumRex said...

PPS. You are still 12 times more shagable than anyone nammed Tammy

sinister said...

delorumrex is getting on with the heat of the project.

Elvina aka LaoNiang said...

sinister: the he-she gender you mean?

DeRex: chill chill! it's getting hot in here...

The Green Dildo said...

SINPREE said...

Clever idea, I dig it. I can only imagine what some of the many women have to say about men. ^^;

Best of luck with your project. It will be a revolution.

*flexes*

Pet fanatic said...

Angel Poem?... Ohh... it's written in your Blog rite?

I wrote a similar to one of the leading ladies in my life once.

If you like it,
then Dedicated to you....

Everyone at one point in their lives are angels to someone or something.

Guess mine would be my fishes at the moment.

shakespeareheroine said...

Very good idea you have there. Best of luck! I'm so tempted to join, but I don't think I can qualify as I don't have enough saucy stories as compared to others.

As-I-Am said...

best of luck!!!!!

serendipity said...
