DAY 11 (June 22nd, 2018)
Words pour out of me
like blood from a struck animal.
Daily Word Count: 103
After discussing my dissertation with my professor (the system renowned Professor S’Aerhir—you may have heard of him; no wait, you probably haven’t), he informed me that there have been reports of a secret initiation ritual among the Hejis that may involve a form of subliminal poetics as yet unknown to us.
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.
