365 Challenge

With the new year rapidly approaching, I’ve had resolutions in mind. As far as I can remember, I’ve never actually made a New Year’s resolution – but this year, I think, is as good a year as any to start.

Anyone heard of the 365 Challenge?

The concept is simple. Once a day, every day, you create a piece of art – be it a photo, a sketch, or a poem – for 365 days. So, starting on January 1st, I’m going to write a poem a day for a full year, and see what I end up with in the end. Not every one is going to be good – but putting pen to paper is the important part, and I’m sure I’ll end up with a few gems here and there.

To keep things interesting, I’ll be using a list of 365 themes to inspire my daily poem – I’m borrowing my list of themes from PoserFan on DeviantArt, who created the list for her own version of the 365 Challenge back in 2005. I’ll be including the list at the end of this post, and will be making regular updates tagged “365 Challenge” to keep you all posted on my progress – if you’d like to join me on this journey, please send me a message, and tag your own progress posts with 365 Challenge as well! It’d be great to have a few friends along for the ride.
