By chance, I learned about the 100 Day Project from a Facebook post. The idea intrigues me, so I’m going to try it.
In a nutshell, the idea is to do something artistic or creative for one hundred days in a row. It doesn’t (and probably shouldn’t) be something grandiose (lest you quit after the first day), but something modest, something that won’t stress you out.
At least, that’s my take on it.
So, I’m going to read a poem and write at least one first-draft stanza of poetry inspired by that poem. This is something I’ve done in the past rather irregularly. The poetry I end up writing isn’t necessarily all that great, but sometimes I’m able to write some intriguing nuggets that I may later expand upon and upon which I might base a full poem. Plus, it just feels good to write.
I’m going to blog (is that a verb?) the poems I read and write. Maybe not everyday, but I’ll compile them in posts. So, if you’re interested in checking out my work, just bookmark http://www.bradseverance.com/category/100-day-project/! I’ll also post them to my Facebook profile, as well.
I start tomorrow! Wish me luck …
