What’s this all about?
Inspired by the fantastic Tisa Bryant’s “1k a Day” challenge that she set for herself to write 1,000 words a day for a few months, and photographer Julie Gallup from Art//Soul’s 365 photography project ( http://learnlovemore.tumblr.com/ - follow her, she is an amazing artist and a beautiful person). Both seemed like they give a lot of opportunity for creative growth, thus this project was born.
For 365 days, we attempted to write one-thousand words of “something” and I’d love to invite anyone who’s interested to join in! Submit what you’ve written if you’d like and it will be posted, or use it as an incentive to save some thoughts and ideas before they skitter away into the pesky cracks in the walls.
- Attempt writing 1,000 words every day for 365 days.
- Start whenever you’d like.
- The piece/s can be anything.
- They do not have to be finished or polished.
- Don’t give up if you miss a day/week/fortnight/month!
Who are we?
In college I majored in media studies and Spanish, and some days I felt like I was side-stepping an English major. Sometimes I wrote bits of fiction to put off a research paper. Other times I sat at my desk reading Spanish novels and scribbling comments in the margins about the writer’s style or plot choices. Writing is always in the background of my thoughts. If I wasn’t so interested in how people create and use media to express themselves, I probably would have been an English major all along. Instead I keep writing as a hobby.
I tend to hover around the fantasy and science fiction genres, but I write and read outside of those too. You can find out more about my interests on my tumblr.
As Wolf said, we’re working on additions to this project, and I am excited to be a part of it. We hope you’ll join us by submitting your ideas and writing.
I’ve always had a love for writing, so evidenced by the hundreds of storybooks written on old, crumpled copypaper filled with poorly formed letters and “creative” drawings that are floating around somewhere in my basement.
After taking possibly the most influential literature course of my life, I decided to major in English with additional concentration in business and art.
Writing is one of those areas where anything that is even a vague interest suddenly become relevant. It can invade, evade, provoke, and persuade. I’m fascinated by words and their agreed upon meanings.
The OED and The Picture of Dorian Gray are my favourite books.
