(you) essays


Time to resurrect an old friend. Sorry it's been so long, but, you know, life 'n' all that.

If you don't know what (you) essays is, click the link and check it out.

I've had some submissions trickle in over the past few months, but I need more.

Many more.

So what are you waiting for? Time to write something for (you) essays.

You got two weeks.

Submissions due June 4th.

I've been meaning to ask you about this but I didn't want you to think I was nagging. Is there a theme? Like, summer or something? Gimme some direction and I'll get on it!

Jeff said...

The only theme is the same as always: Stories about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness in the USA.

Paula said...

I will *try* -- no guarantees. It has to be good enough. :)

Sour Grapes said...

I'm simply bursting with ideas and dynamism, but sadly I'm not American. So that's too bad.

Jeff said...

There's nothing in the guidelines that says you have to be an American to contribute, SG. It's just gotta be about pursuing happiness in the USA. I, for one, would love to see how a Brit living in Belgium would interpret that.

Don said...

Really sort of a group blog, huh? Only you require entries to be decently written and well thought out. So, not like a blog at all.

Jeff said...

Kinda like that, Don, only not at all.

I read some of the past essays and...and...{sob} if I had a year, maybe even a few months...but two weeks? It takes me a day to write out a grocery list, man.

Looney said...

Isn't he a Scot living in Belgium? If not, where the heck did I get that impression...??

Don said...

Scots are Brits.

Lucyp said...

Brit living in Britain here so i would not know where to start writing about pursuing happiness in the USA, i have enough problems finding it in my own country!

O' Tim said...

Wow Kos! Just the other night I resurrected a short story I had in progress a couple of months ago and was thinking, "I wonder if Kos will resurrect YouEssays?"

We got the powah.

Jeff said...

Serendipity, O'Tim. Can't wait to get it!

Paula said...

I sent something to the "creative" addy!

Jeff said...

I got it Paula. Awesome. Thanks!
