Accentuate the Positive

Originally posted by quickreaver

Hey, gang. You know how fed up you get with fandom wank sometimes? I know I do. But here's a small thing we can do that might cause a bigger ripple.

Spearheaded by honeylocusttree, this Thunderclap is a way we can potentially shine a light on being KIND instead of crotchety towards each other in fandom.

Being a part of a fandom can impact your life far more than expected. We find ourselves relating to the characters more deeply, we meet folks that turn into genuine friends, we participate in charity events that make the world better, spurred on by our fandom relations...see how it goes? But it can get vitriolic too, for a whole host of reasons.

This simple reminder, trying to take one day to sit back and do nothing but be patient and tolerant and wank-free, is a step in the right direction. That's all it is! No donations, no nuthin' but a promise to can the wank for one...single...day.

Easy, right? July 12 is that day. Sign up HERE.

Off topic: Once knew a man who said he'd been part of the jam session that gave rise to "Accentuate the Positive" (this was in England during WWII) but turned down the offer of any share in the writing credits because he didn't think it'd go anywhere. :D
