About The Scintilla Project

Scintilla was born and took shape through emails and video chats between Dominique, Onyi, and Kim. The three of us became blogfriends through our participation in Reverb, a December blog project which focuses on year end reflection.

Who we are is informed by our stories. Here, we want to offer you a space to introduce yourself, and a guide to share your history and make some connections along the way. Reveal as much as you wish – we understand that not everyone wants to lay their soul bare on the internet. We want to encourage you, however, to test your limits a bit. There is a deep beauty to be found when you open yourself up and find new friends at the end of your journey.

We’re offering promp​t choices so you don’t feel locked in to a daily prompt which may or may not resonate with you. This project will go on for two weeks to avoid the burnout that can develop in the middle of longer projects. The rules are pretty loose here – you can write about the prompt of the day or you can refer back to prompts you may have skipped.

Sign up for our email list to receive our daily prompts and follow us on twitter. Tweet with the hashtag #scintilla13 so we know you’re participating!

Hello and welcome – it’s lovely to meet you.
