'The Fifty-2 Weeks of 2013' Project

Happy New Year! Here's a new year wish in someone else's words: "Cheers to a new year and another chance to get it right!"

And that's what we're trying to do with The Fifty-2 Weeks of 2013. Aparna and I were brainstorming about an easy-to-do, interpret-it-your-way, in-your-medium kind of project and we've cobbled together something by this name. There will be a theme every week which you can interpret in writing or in photography or in any other medium such as art. It can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. You can upload the photographs on Flickr and if you are writing, it can be on your blog or it can be a note/photo on your own Facebook page. You can then link those posts to the open Facebook group that we've created: http://www.facebook.com/groups/243917995739438/. This is so that we have a collection of everyone's work at one place.

Now for the first theme of the project: New Year resolutions. Write about it or express it pictorially. (That doesn't mean you can write it on a piece of paper and photograph it like the stuff we see on Facebook. We may make an exception for calligraphic depiction, ahem!)

Have no clue how? Neither have I. Put on those thinking hats, and join the Facebook group. If you aren't on Facebook, just do it on your blog!

And here's another new year wish:
May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions! (Joey Adams)
