100 Day Project Three – Day 5

DAY 5 (June 16th, 2018)

OLD PATTERNS

Old patterns
deaden the pain.

The pain is gone.
A scar remains.

And I am lifted out of it.

Daily Word Count: 120

EXCERPT

“Well … cheers. Here’s to you not getting what’s your due, despite my best efforts.”

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.

Enjoy!
