The Writing Project
A 365 Day Project
And don’t let anyone tell that I have not said anything new:
la disposition des matières est nouvelle.
── 巴斯卡（Blaise Pascal）
Instead of writing personal journals or practicing skills, The Writing Project is a one-year experiment to reconsider these questions: What is the authorship? What is the editorship? Is an editor an author in some sense? And, is the uniqueness of individual an illusion?
From January 1 to December 31 in 2014, I took a quote each day from Facebook friends or fanpages as my diary. As the boundary between people’s original writings and the quotes from Facebook posts starts to blur, it seems that my life experience, though fragmental, echoes with those friends’, and vice versa. I cannot help thinking that the so-called uniqueness of individual appears to be a self-delusion and an illusion. How come those words I pieced up in the quotation marks resemble my own experience, even though I prefer to believe my own existence is incomparable and unique?
The similarities among us are more than differences, perhaps?
