On (some) Tuesdays I write about education and then post to the Two Writing Teacher blog. I also comment on at least three other blog posts.
As of today, there are 103 days left in 2022.
For the last several years I have self-inflicted a #last100days project. There is significance to 100 days for me. My son used to tell me when he was a toddler that 100 was his favorite number. (He is 19 now!) It is a nice round number I am drawn to. You can do something with it. It is important.
This morning I spent several hours in writing life related Zoom calls which are fueling. I spent time reading. I did some yoga.
Next month there will be a prompt to write a poem a day which is a common challenge I give myself. I will write to them but probably will not publish them anywhere.
Past 100-day projects have been me writing prompts, writing one random sentence that turned into a story after the challenge was over, and the 100 rejections that morphed into 100 submissions. The 100 submissions project yielded a collection I published.
I am thinking about tarot and writing which I explore daily. I am reading flash fiction and logging details that will enhance my writing but I have not landed on a project yet for 2022. I could revisit old classes and redo them every day. I am still thinking.
I have been thinking a lot about public and private writing and the purposes of each. The why behind what I choose to share and what I don’t. Maybe that will become part of my project.
What project would you choose?
I would love to hear your thoughts about 100 day projects! Instagram I believe will be part of my accountability with this project. If you want to follow me there I am @writertammy.
