I’m a sucker for challenges. I don’t usually complete them, but even trying you get farther than you would have not doing anything, right?
So when I was reminded again yesterday of the 100 Day Project, which started today (April 4 for those of you in the future), I decided I needed to do it.
Never mind the busyness of this week, this month, this life.
I needed this creative practice.
Another way to work on a creative slump is to force yourself to do a little something every day. The practice, the habit of it, is so important.
But what to choose?
There are so many great things you can commit to doing for 100 days:
- Taking more pictures that aren’t of your kids
- Writing a poem (I tried that last year but didn’t make it too far)
- Working on a project in a particular genre, whether that’s sewing, knitting, painting, whatever
It was really easy for me to choose what I wanted to work on.
It’s a thing I’ve always wished I was good at but never take the time to practice.
I clearly have a long way to go.
I’d like to do a quote every day, and because it’s Maya Angelou’s birthday, and this is totally appropriate even if I don’t know if she really said it, that’s my first one.
I will try to complete the challenge, to improve my skills and to consistently document it as well (posting to Instagram daily is actually part of the challenge).
I’m sure I’ll be blogging about it a bit, too, sharing resources and what I’ve learned from more consistent practice.
What creative practice could you commit to for 100 days? Or even 30 days? Or a week? Start where you are with what you want to do. I’d love to hear about it.
And if you don’t know where to start, sign up for my newsletter and I’ll send you a copy of my little ebook on 10 creative things to try in 10 minutes. Do one a day for 10 days and you’ll be well on your way to having some more creative fun in your life.
