Sometime ago, I came across this site called The Great Disconnect and the fabulous Elle Luna - she's a fabulous artist, designer, and writer! While there I read a post about college kids, the need to commit oneself, etc... And VOILA! #The100DayProject was born.
I won't go into all the logistics of how the project came to be, because you can read about that HERE. And you should. It's quite an intriguing story. My purpose, today, is simply to share its brilliance and how I'm going to participate.
As you can see in my left sidebar I've chosen a logo to cheer myself on - logo totally provided by the project. If you go HERE, you can choose your own too! In a nutshell, the idea is as follows:
- Choose something you're passionate about. Think about what you enjoy, what helps you relax, what you've always wanted to try your hand at or master. It doesn't have to be work related, but it can be. The purpose is to set our goals free from stress and see ourselves grow. I love how Elle mentions in her post that The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. How perfect is that?(Seeing how I'm sure I'm speaking to a lot of writers, we all know what that is.) My choice: current revisions on my YA novel & then on my MG novel.
- Commit to interacting with the passion you've chosen at least once every single day for 100 consecutive days, starting on April 6th through June 14th, 2015. (Yes, it's the 8th, but that's okay. You can catch up.)
- Share your daily progress with the world on Instagram (or anywhere, really) by using #The100DayProject and a hashtag you create - #100Daysof...My personal hashtag is #100DaysofPolishing. Follow or check in with The Great Disconnect and Elle Luna on Instagram.
- Lastly, choose one of the designed logos to keep your commitment in the forefront of your mind ... and eyes. Once again, you can go HERE to find them.
If you decide to do this - and why not? We all need a little push now and then - let me know. I'll be cheering you on! I'm on Instagram HERE! I'll follow back, promise.
