DAYS 34, 35, 36 (July 15th, 16th, 17th 2018)
Time won’t spoil her spirit
but crack the cocoon that is her body open.
Winds won’t break her wings
that have laughed and cried for flying.
She’ll not shrink from rake or plough
or rest beneath the harvest moon
but cast her wide-eyed net into
a sea of hope and longing.
Disclaimer: I’ve fallen quite behind! In order to catch up, I’m putting Novel X on hold and concentrating on poetry!
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.
