The Hoopla 500

The Hoopla 500 is a new writing project by the creator of SMUG. (You remember SMUG, right? The site that taught us "nobody is sexier than you"?) Hoopla 500 should help fill the 'clever writing' gap that Life Serial and An Entirely Other Day have left behind*. Now if we can just get Leslie to relaunch SMUG, all will be well.

It'd be good if anyone could contribute to it. Forcing everyone to write 500 words of crap each day is a great idea. Clears the mind.

Then again, if anyone could contribute to it, it'd be just like swanky.. and that often bores me to tears.

I miss the old swanky a lot. Why did they throw it all away? Swankarmy come home!

y'know the thing about the web? you can all go write 500 words a day if you want. not every personal project needs to be collaborative...

If you have 500 words in you and they are bitter, funny or both, donate them to Uber.Nu.

Why write 500 when you could get by with only 54?

Because it takes more to satisfy a woman.
