DAY 15 (June 26th, 2018)
An old woman knit a silhouette
from a patchwork of dreams and threadbare trances,
between wisps of moth-eaten memories on a park bench tottering
between clots of madness and enlightenment—
and walked into it.

“You shouldn’t always believe what you read or see in the news, Charlot. I’ll let you in on a secret. Sometimes we intentionally leak bad press just to keep our enemies on their toes.”
The 100 Day Project is a creativity excavation. It’s about unearthing dormant or unrealized creativity by committing to a daily practice everyday for 100 days.
Creativity is a skill. The more we practice, the more skilled we become. Practice takes time. Practice takes commitment. Practice is a radical act in this speeded up world. Through practice, we develop a creative habit. Through habit, we reconnect with and know ourselves again as a creative being.
I started this, my third, 100 Day Project on June 12th, 2018. My project is to write at least one first-draft stanza inspired by a poem, a quote, an idea, a painting—anything, really (or nothing at all) and to write at least one hundred shitty first-draft words of my novel. I’ll post the results here.
