DAY 16 (June 27th, 2018)
A moment weightless in love
lingers in its own eternity
it swept through you—a furious, elemental wind
that felled you, root and branch—
an ancient cypress,
palpably impermanent despite
the countless centuries it had endured.

“I suppose that’s possible. I mean, I don’t have proof to the contrary. But it’s hard for me to believe. It goes against everything I believe about you, about the CIA, about our whole damned corrupted government.”
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.
