365 Days of Guest Posts on Living and Dying. Get involved and share your story.
All things born must die a physical death. This we all know. Whether you believe that we fade to black or merge into the light, view death as an end, a new beginning or a transition, plays a major role in how you live. Do you try and experience everything you can knowing that you are going to die and be gone forever? Does this cause you to embrace life more fully or does it fill you with fear? Or do you believe that the way you live sets before you a path towards heaven, hell, or future births?
For 365 days, starting from May 1, 2016, we will have a meditation on Life and Death here in the Dungeon. I want to hear about how you embrace life. What makes you feel alive? What gives your life value? I want to know about how you deal with death. When did you come to really understand death? How has that affected your life? Does death make life more meaningful?
All bloggers, writers, artists, live-ers and die-ers are welcome. Send your prose piece (600 – 3000 words) along with a short bio, a profile picture, or picture that represents you to be featured with the bio, and a header image (2000 x 640 pixels recommended) to firstname.lastname@example.org and enter On Living and Dying as the subject. Be sure to also give the blog, webpage, Facebook, or Twitter address that you’d like your name to be linked to. (If you don’t have one of these, and live totally off the grid, that’s cool too.)
365 days means there are a lot of voices being involved. If you have a friend that you think has a good story to tell, invite them to join. If they don’t consider themselves writers, tell them that you’ll proofread it for them and get it up to par. We want to hear from everybody.
All submitted content should be the original work of the author.
Other notes: Don’t be scared to proofread before submission. Feel free to share your best material! There is 365 days, so no need to stream of conscious it, take a day and reread, refresh and rejuvenate your post until it’s fantastic.
