100 Day Project Three – Day 18

DAY 18 (June 29th, 2018)


time is a crutch
for the dying.
hear yourself breathe.
sense yourself distinct.
a world presses in upon you like a mold–
the last dimension is pulled out
like a rug from under you.
what is life without it?

Quite smooth, he thought, as he shook it … somewhat too vigorously. He had thought to kiss it, but thought the better of it. He again smiled awkwardly instead.

The 100 Day Project

The 100 Day Project

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.
