My 100 Day Project (2019 edition)

Another round of The 100 Day Project is upon us! This will be my third year participating in this wonderful process of making and creating something to share with the world every day. In 2017, my project was #100DaysofPolaroid360Prints. I focused on seeing and creating while learning the process of capturing and processing prints. Then scanning in to share. In 2018, my project was #100daysofnaturefieldnotes . This time I also embarked on a photography project and paired it in a nature photo journal style to write observations about the world around me.

 This year, I’m taking the plunge into the project again and am thrilled to make it all about writing!

As Mary Oliver said, “I think we’re creative all day long. We have to have an appointment to have that work out on the page. Because the creative part of us gets tired of waiting, or just gets tired.”

What if I brought together my desire to write and the 100 day project? What if I made the 100 day project my daily appointment to have my work out on the page?

I remembered three important reasons I love being a part of this project: the community, the commitment to creating every day, and the awe and curiosity to see a body of work at the end of 100 days. Because that is a really good amount of time to dig in and dig deep into a process.

I asked what if I wrote for 100 days and that seemed too vague. So I decided I would need to be specific. What about 500 words? It just sort of came to me. It felt like a lot to commit to, since I had no real sense of what it would be like. So I did a test run for a few days. I sat down, put on my Bose headphones and my classical “get in the create zone” playlist on Amazon Prime Music and just started writing. And I found that 500 words was very doable. That in fact, I was exceeding it anywhere from 750 to 1,000. The 500 word commitment seemed to be enough to get me really going and in a flow.

500 words X 100 days = 50,000 words! That’s book length people!

I’ve set no specific expectation that it be ready to print. In fact, I’ve given myself permission to write as rough and raw as it comes out. Because the point is to get it down onto the page. I’ve been writing a lot in a sporadically emerging sort of way. I think the next 100 days will help to find clarity and I’m bound to learn a lot about what it is I really want to say.

And so, I’m in. My 2019 project will be #100daysoftruthtellingbyjlynn. I will not be publishing each days draft because this is not a polish and publish sort of endeavor. It’s freedom to flow. But I will find a nugget of truth from each days writing to share on instagram in my Instagram story. I’ll also try to share other tid bits about how its going, what I’m thinking about, other writer’s who inspire me when I need a nudge to keep going. I’m that giddy kind of nervous excited and of course determined. Ready, set, go write!

 

2018: Looking Back on the Year In Photographs

Jlynn Frazier

I’m continuing the tradition I started a few years ago to share a personal collection of the people, places, and moments that were meaningful to me. Moments that keep me overflowing with a love for the journey I am on. Moments that feed my unwavering curiosity to experience and preserve our wild places.

This collection of photos are taken from across my travels here in Maine, with the exception of a day spent along the Hoh River Trail in Olympic National Park.
