Cubies Are Special...Wait...What's a Cubie?

Okay, Okay, so I know that ninety per cent of people, possibly more, don't know what a Cubie is.


That's okay.


I don't blame you right now, but just know that in five years (if you still don't know what that is) you will be out of the loop...


I HOPE.


See I belong to what is (in my opinion) the best writing group of all time. No. No. Don't tell me yours is good too. I won't believe you.


I've written about my love for them here and here. Go ahead and read those posts. They say a lot about how fabulous we all are. :-)


Well, this group is called "WRITERS CUBED", and we lovingly refer to each other as cubies. (I know that's a little teenager-y, but we write YA for the most part, so that makes it okay).


How did we come up with this name?


Let me share a little tidbits with you about the "specialness" of cubes.


1. Cubes are equal in proportion, size, and shape on every side. This makes it so that everything is equal: the sides, the vertices, the faces, the baces, etc. (Not unlike the Knights of the Round Table, except for much better, because everyone still knew Arthur was the "leader" of that little group even though we supposed to be on equal footing. (Sorry...off on a tangent). Everyone in our group is equal. Whether we've written one story or four, have been published or not, we treat each other as the same. It's awesome.


2. At any time, one of the faces can be the base of the cube. This means that we split the duties of holding everything together equally. We have times when we listen and be a "face" and other times when we lead and be the "base." Great sharing of responsiblities.


3.With the cube, the volume is equal to the third power of any of its dimensions. Which means, as a whole, the cube is equal to three times the amount of any of the sides. Our writers group feels that we are greater when combined together than we would be navigating the world of writing and publishing on our own.


Pretty cool huh?


But what does this have to do with you?


Our group has just launched a new website. Writer's Cubed
(click on word to go to the site...or click on the picture in my sidebar)


Our goal is to help other writers "hang in there" "keep at it" and generally "stick together". Create your own CUBE of writing friends who bolster you up, hold you together, and be your base and support every once in a while.


So head on over there and become a follower. You won't regret it.


(Well, maybe you will...but I don't see why...)


Thanks CUBIE friends for always being there for me. For pushing me to keep writing when I really want to give up or feel like the worst writer in the world. For being my friends through this whole crazy journey!


What about all of you? Who supports you in your writing/blogging journey? Who inspires you to be better than you are?


Don't have that? We can help... WRITERS CUBED! wants to help you become the best writer you can be. :-)

I see you got the logo. :)

I can't believe we're coming up on two years. It's been an awesome ride, Margie. Glad I've been able to "road trip" with you.
