I struggle with consistency, with finishing things I’ve started. I struggle with staying focused, staying on a single path. I get overwhelmed by choice, by the abundance of options and paths that the world offers. I dabble here, I dabble there.
Neil Strauss @neil_strauss commits to writing "2 crappy pages a day". Ernest Hemingway wrote 500 words, hell or high water.
I'm committing to writing 100 words for 100 days, even if the words suck, and sharing them. Because If no one reads them, what is the point?
I would love to improve my editing skills. My current writing style is to throw up onto the page and then spend eternity trying to clean up the mess. Hopefully, this project will help with that.
Just like working out, once you get started, it gets easier. Then you plateau, then you say, fuck this. I know my test will be the "fuck this" phase. That is why I’m making the number of words so low, so it’s super doable. It’s also about cultivating creative momentum. Once I sit down and write 100 words, I usually end up writing more.
Is there something super simple that you would like to commit to for 100 days with me? Maybe 100 words, or maybe something else.
After a quick google search, I’ve found that the #100daysproject is quite the thing, with many life-changing stories! And it’s pretty simple.
“Do something quick, creative, and do it without fear! Don’t think too much, or better yet, don’t think at all! See where it leads!” Jacq the Stripper @jacqthestripper committed to #100daysofart, created her iconic stripper comics and now has multiple books, art shows, comedy shows, sex-witch talent shows, and is an overall feminist icon, sex-worker activist, and overall badass. She was always a bad ass, but now we all know about her bad-assery. Do the world a service and share your bad-assery! Cultivate the habit of creativity and share it, shamelessly.
