I was sent a link to this project by a friend and I thought I would share it on here since it sounds like a lot of fun. I am going to give it a go myself since a little writing practice before Camp NaNoWriMo starts couldn’t hurt.
Their online promotion describes the project the best:
“Lat, Long is an online project about the people and places that shape us. The objective is to create an archive of experiences organized by location. We’re off to a good start, but need your help to fill the map with stories from around the world.
Think of a really important or memorable time in your life. Then think about where you were during that time. It could be a vacation, your home, a park, a restaurant, a concert… anything. What was special about that place? How can you capture that place and that moment in 500 words?”

Feel free to post a link in the comments if you decide to enter it. I’m enjoying reading the memories posted on this website.
