My new favorite places to write 2021-01-24 22:38:38

I've now been writing within the foobar implementation of Adagia Tribes for a few weeks now. The longest running one is dedicated to writing Short Fiction. Another to practicing Hooks. And finally the most recent is for consistently practicing Poetry.

I've never aspired to write poetry. I started this poetry Tribe simply because I wanted to encourage
keni
to try it after her post about poetry. But the Poetry tribe is now one of my favorite places to write. 

My poems are bad. But the experience of writing them is great. I feel free, unburdened by imagined expectation of others, though able to still put care into imagining how they might be read by others. It's a sort of yin and yang that I struggle to maintain in my other writing. 

My other favorite place to write is the short fiction tribe. In the beginning I was the only one showing up, but recently my other fellow writer 
dealingwith
has been coming pretty consistently. Right now there are no notifications for when a tribe member has posted, so I'm always really surprised and excited to enter the tribe page and see something new.

And you know what? I like the Hooks tribe too. My feeling while writing in it isn't that deep zen feeling I get from the poems or fiction tribes, but I get a thrill from pounding out something with the sole intention of making it engaging. It's like writing a fast paced TV drama.

I see a lot of new changes Sir Abe. Where and how does one take part in the Hooks tribe.. That one seems like a nice new challenge.

Just added you. Youll need to create a project here https://adagia.org/project/create and then go to the Hooks Tribe and add it to the tribe. then you can start practicing hooks with us. Would love your comments on the existing hooks there : )
