Last year I participated in the #100DayProject where I made cards of my favourite quotes and posted them on Instagram. This year my project will continue – 03 April through 11 July – but maybe a bit less public.
This year I am planning on writing 100 short stories.
They maybe all truth, they maybe all lies, or maybe a bit of both, but they’ll all be 2,500 words or less. I really want to tackle those little stories that are easily overlooked in the busy of our life. Who knows what they might contain? That’s part of the fun of it all.
There are some stories that will be deep dives, and some shallow. I’m looking forward to getting them down on paper.
(NOTE: Special thank you to Kara’s bonus mum, Ruth, who prompted me to do this project. We met at Brian Henry’s reading afternoon last week and Ruth asked some fascinating questions. Kara mentioned that without sitting together she would never have heard these stories and I realized that my kids have never heard them either – and I barely remembered them myself! Time to get a few recorded.)
