birds in a barrel's mission is to release creative nonfiction into the wild.

40 Days & 40 Writes is its first project.

An Opera of Canaries

Did you know that group of canaries is called an "opera?" Or, alternatively, an "aria?" Canaries are in fact bred and trained to produce certain song patterns

You are not just a bunch of writers, you are an opera.

I'm curious if you are writing directly into the web page form, or writing elsewhere and pasting your writing in? (Here's an aside: Don't write into the form when you're logged in as the site administrator, because you can in fact hit a keystroke that will lose all your work.)

I'm toying with a slightly modified design where the writing form would pop up. Can you take a look and give me your thoughts? I like the button's drama... but is the form itself too narrow?

Take a peek and reply here, or make a comment after you're done writing.  Keep up all the good work.

Onward and upward!
