DAY 7 (June 18th, 2018)
How I wish you were here,
the way you once were
before we planted our wounded bodies
like flags on some war-torn hill
in the middle of no one cares.
Daily Word Count: 141
“The study of manipulating the mind, emotions, and will of individuals by the implantation of directives and ideas into the subconscious of the listeners of poetry, epic poetry, and stories.”
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.
