It was Deb’s idea, actually. She’s been listening to me whine that I feel disconnected from my writing, and especially from my blog.
She’s also been fielding my email messages about how I keep having ideas for things to write about but can’t find the right image (because blogging is ALL about the art now, and never mind how good the writing might be, right?) or had to finish wrangling dogs/cooking dinner/doing laundry/whatever and lost the thread of what I wanted to write.
Now, she’s a pretty patient friend, but she’s also a fixer. I mean, you wave a problem in her face and she wants to solve it. I love that about her, but the thing is, you have to want the solution.
And sometimes it’s easier just to whine.
But then the sent me a link to Elle Luna’s 100 Day Project, and at first I thought, “well, the thing I would like to try is kind of similar to what she’s already sort of doing,” but I was intrigued.
I was really, really intrigued.
So I emailed Deb and said, “I’m kind of thinking of doing something with post-it notes.” And she thought it was different enough, and ME enough that I should go for it.
Since that conversation, I’ve decided that either 3×5 or 5×7 notecards might be better, though I’m still planning to affix them to my fridge. Then, after the 100 days are over, I’ll use them for blog- and fiction-fodder.
But at least I’ll be doing something I can complete, and that will keep me interested in amused.
For more about the project, in general, follow the link above (you can click on the image in this post).
For my stuff, specifically, you can follow me on Instagram: @Melysse.
What would YOU like to do for 100 days?
