DAY 19 (June 30th, 2018)
a troupe of sparrows
dance a soot brown feather hop
and flit higgledy–piggledy between
bread crumbs tossed
like playground balls
from one squawking beak
to the next

“Wait just a minute … I didn’t agree to any mission. I just want to attend the communion.”
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.
