Almost a week into #the100dayproject. Last year, I followed from afar but this year I felt ready to join in. There is something with challenges that I really like. I pride myself to be a very disciplined person, and love to have a project. Something concrete to work towards. Not all challenges attract my attention, but what I like about The 100 Day Project (an initiative by Lindsay Jean Thomson) is that you are free to make whatever you want, big or small, as long as it’s one thing for 100 days.
I chose to make it small and manageable – my project is to write a short poem a day and to experiment with presentation and handwriting. If you have been following me for a while, you’ll recognise the format from NaNoWriMo last year and how that resulted in a zine.
This feels like a very vulnerable project. I find writing more revealing and raw, so please be kind with me. This will be a good exercise for me to not shy away from feelings and motifs. I have decided to allow myself to let me inner teenager out, and let her be as dramatic, naïve and romantic as she wants to.
These are my posts from the last 6 days. Follow me on Instagram to join me on my writing journey, and of course tell me of you are participating in the challenge too!
