Tha Project ---a poll

Yeah, so, I'm thinking of taking the women warrior book off the back burner. I've been thinking through some things about it, at least, while placing the CR book back on a back burner (the The CR FAQ covers so much more than something on one tradition can, that I've decided to put it on hold for now). And this is related to some career stuff I'm considering, so.....here's a poll.

ANYONE can respond. And read it. While the book is about Pagan women warrior paths, I certainly am not hoping that only Pagan women read it....I hope that it offers non-Pagan women inspiration and ideas as well, I hope it offers those who do not fully identify as male or female something as well in a world where "warrior" is seen to equal a very narrow definition of "male" and I hope it gives men some idea of what training on this path is like for women in such a world. Physical training is not really different for the female body compared to the male, it's the psychological issues around it in a world that is so divided as ours.

Anyway. I'm kicking getting this started around. I am hoping this poll helps me solidify some ideas, mostly regarding the last question, and gets me jump started at a point in my life where, well, motivation is a bit of a problem. I'm also curious as to how much interest there might actually be, so....go at it:

I'm very interested in this project. The reason for my last answer is that I personally have no interest in guns, but I wouldn't be opposed to you including them; I just qwould have no personal use for the info other than passing it on to those who would. I also wanted to emphasize that yes, I do want to see lots of history and lore along with the practical stuff.

Also, once you head to the publishing stage, let me know if there's anything I can help ya with :)

Yes,although I didn't word them to really work that way, I did do it as check boxes, because I figured that with some people would want to do combinations. ~;)

This seems to be quite an interesting project. Mind if I friend you to keep in contact/up on this project? I got here through one of the links you posted (can't remember which community though as it was in three different communities I'm a member of).

Sure, go ahead, not sure how much I'll be discussing this in the future but if I do do the Tha Project filter, which I'm still debating, I can add you to it.

Put me down on the interested list--I'm over here working on a warrior path book as well, although not one focused on women in particular.

Re: Question
Having just finished a collaboration, I'm very much into working on my own right now (not that I'm saying that it was a bad experience, just that I need a different focus on this), but thank you. Of course, there is always room for more (because one thing I have learned is the more books on a subject that exist and do well, the more likely another will be published) so I hope you might work on your own.

Interesting project. While I wouldn't likely read a generic book on the topic (historical perspectives on feminism topics aren't really my thing), I'm curious what you'll come up with and generally find your opinions interesting, so I think I'd read a book by you on the topic.

Okay...it never occurred to me to ask if someone would read something specifically by ME about it but maybe not in general. Hee

I didn't choose on the last one because I thought that the topic might be best in two volumes. V.I the history and lore and V.2 being the more practical/application based volume.

Well, as you could see from part the second, there's an idea along that line going on...sort of. In the meantime, why two, how about three? With the spiritual as well. But not volumes as much as sections. Uh, yeah, then the work book(s)? We'll see

And then of course the companion workout DVD :-)

I'd be interested in a Tha Project filter. :)

I'll be doing another poll to gather who wants to be on it...in case I forget, please fill it out. Probably today...if I get to it...things are, well a bit overwhelming at the moment. ~;)
