Monday, September 25th – Sunday, October 1st
For week three, I resumed my practice of writing daily during my lunch break, although some days were more productive than others. I also wrote a bit on Saturday, and during the evening on a couple of weekdays. All in all, a fairly strong showing!
WORD COUNT FOR THIS WEEK
Chapter Three: 109
Chapter Four: 599
Total Words: 708
I rewrote and added a few things for chapter three and chapter four is well underway. I’ll likely devote the next two or three weeks to chapter four. Onward and forward!!!
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 100 Day Project (my second one) on September 11th. Each week, I will write at least five hundred words of my novel. These words don’t necessarily have to be a polished product, but should, at least, be coherent and grammatically sound. I’ll also post two poems a week. These poems will be a bit more polished than first drafts. Most of the material will come from poetry that I wrote in my first 100 day project. In addition to writing the poems, I’m also going to read them, so that you may hear how they sound in my head. I’ve been told I have a pleasant voice, so I’m sure you won’t be disappointed. Lastly, I’ll create one blog post where I read a famous poem written by a real poet! I will also include a little history and fun facts about the poet.
