GLOSSED OVER - 4/5 Content Overviews, 3 Locked Subsaidits, 2 Open Discussions, Reflections, And A Challenge
4/5 Content Overviews, 3 Locked Subsaidits, 2 Open Discussions
For over six months I've been talking about my two big projects that I was going to develop, here on SaidIt. I've now finally outlined them in Bittersweet Seeds: Content Overview and Trutherism 101: Content Overview. I've even outlined my production management sub, Glossed And Profound: Content Overview. These basic summaries of each project with a table of contents sub will evolve with updates, much like a wiki article. You may notice 3 of these subs are restricted with locked posts. This is to cleanly present the projects and organize all open discussion comments under this 1 sub rather than monitor chaos across 3 subs. Feel free to respond to my G.O posts or submit your own questions and ideas and I'll add notable posts to the Glossed Over: Content Overview. Truther Top 20s remains open for discussion too, and it will eventually get revised and the content overview being drafted on its wiki. TT20 will get more attention later, parallel to T101 developments.
Initially I posted a title with an empty text field then spent a few days refining the bodies of the content overviews. They're polished now, so I welcome constructive criticisms on them in this Glossed Over sub. Not the best way to do it, though for future posts I'll work on drafts in the wikis and when polished post them with a linked parallel post here in G.O for discussion.
Is this the best way to organize things?
I don't know. It seems to be the best way I know of at the moment. As I keep saying, " If we don't try we'll never know. If we don't try we'll never achieve success no matter how great or small. "
Why am I wasting so much time drafting and presenting all this content?
Sure, I might be well into my projects or even near completion if I focused away from social media. But I must impress upon you that it's not just about creating agitprop content in a vacuum that rejects status quo systems. It's also about building alternative open solutions and supportive communities to resist the rigged establishment matrix.
I'd also like to really focus your attention to one particular paragraph on the GaP Overview...
" I know how to write well enough. I know how to animate professionally. I know how to be a creative director and filmmaker. I know little about business, finance, taxes, laws, community building, or worker-directed enterprises. Working on movies or an animated series is not new to me but creating and managing a successful business, not to mention one so far outside the box like GaP, will be the greatest challenge of my life. If this online worker co-op project fails then I'll be forced to develop my creative projects alone. "
That's why I came with my dreams to SaidIt for feedback.
The GaP, BsS, and T101 subs are restricted. By contributing efforts you may earn merit, trust, access, and a seat at the table. The more good ideas, work produced, and good content created, the merrier.
Granted, there's still not much to get excited about yet. I don't expect a flood of feedback immediately or even down the line, much less assistance. Though I do hope. But I know I'll need to lead by example. I don't want to be leader so much as an inspiration for others to build greater things upon what I can bring to these humble foundations. I don't expect great mass success, but I hope to earn respect from folks with a variety of viewpoints and the strong convictions that we can do better, expect better, and make better, for ourselves and our world.
For now, I have one centralized GaP To Do List as a roadmap where folks may track my course, developments, and future plans. While good enough for now it needs some systemic refinement and development, records including accomplished tasks, dates, credits, etc. and a dedicated wiki page. Eventually the GaP To Do List will split when the other projects ramp up.
These are 3 long term projects that will take years to come to fruition. I don't expect your support right away. I don't expect you to be won over easily. But I do hope that you will stay tuned, pay attention, and follow these developments. If you think that any of this content has issues and can be improved, I insist that you let me know about it. Allow me the chance to earn your respect, feedback, and support, and together we can build these projects and a better fandom for the world.
And A Challenge
Now that I've outlined how my projects will unfold, I still have not revealed what I have in mind for their content - so before it's all unveiled I want to hear your ideas about where these stories may be going, what ideas might be presented, and what narrative themes could arc over them. I've dropped tiny clues here and there but never laid anything out of significance. The canvas is currently wide open for your speculations on both of them.
I want your predictions for what the Bittersweet Seeds and Trutherism 101 projects will be about.
I want to hear your ideas, much the way people speculated on how Game Of Thrones and The Avengers Endgame would play out. Now they're guessing what the next Star Wars movie will be about.
I'll soon present the actual T101 Conceptual Outline, Topical Overview, and shorter Content Summaries to clarify, build upon, and refine.
In contrast, Bittersweet Seeds has a 3 act structure with 2 parts in each act. Some are longer than others. In addition to this blank-canvas opportunity for you to pontificate, I will present this story in at least 6 parts, if not on a scene by scene basis. Each BsS section posted will have a corresponding G.O post asking for constructive criticism feedback and if people like, I hope they will speculate on what happens next.
Is this a gimmick?
You tell me. I don't think so. Maybe a little. If I were trying to make it a gimmick I'd be on busier forums. I'm trying to engage the SaidIt community, develop a dialogue, earn your attention, maybe get your participation, and perhaps foster some support down the road. I'm also trying to gauge how well any of this is being received. If you have better ideas how to do any of this lemme know.

▶ GlossedAndProfound.com, BittersweetSeeds.com, and Trutherism101.com were registered on 2019-05-01 for future use. Long in conception, finally here on SaidIt, the official origin place, started on May Day, 2019. May 1 is a metonym for International Workers Day, a day of celebration of the working class. Behind it lies a complex largely forgotten history dating back over one-and-a-half centuries. Look into it.
