Well. One full year of writing every day. It's kind of an odd feeling to have reached this little 'milestone' to be honest. It doesn't really feel like an accomplishment at this point. Writing every day is just what I do.
Regardless of how I might feel about it, I'm still going to mark the occasion. So today's prompt, if you care to indulge, is: a year in review.
Writing every day for a year is bound to produce some right awful crap. And it has. But there are some good creations to be found in that pile, if one is willing to get very, very dirty.
Lucky for you, I am. So here, in date order, are some of my highlights from the year. Both my own and from others.
Surprisingly it only took two days of practice before I wrote something I really liked. Looking back at it now, I can see a story developing from it. Hmm.
Geez, I wrote a lot more prose back then. Obviously before I went and joined Protagonize.
Okay, seriously. I was like Mr. Prose. This is going to take a long time to get through.
I would be remiss not to mention one of my favorite Def Poetry Jam Friday posts.
So much prose. I had totally forgotten about this one. It makes me smile.
Ooh, a poem! This is one that still makes me laugh.
A little bit about me on my 30th birthday, originally written at a writing workshop. Remains one of my favorite pieces of writing.
This one I'm pointing out mostly due to Ana's comment. But I'm also quite fond of the writing itself :)
Oh I quite like this. Did I really write that? Huh.
This legitimately made me laugh out loud. Still does, sadly.
I think these might be my favorite haiku that I've written here :)
I still like the peace that permeates this piece.
It's sad but I still like it. I'm allowed to be sad every now and again. Plus that was the post that sparked g2's poetry craze :)
God, this still cracks me up. How embarrassing.
This too, actually.
Okay, that's enough of that. I won't do any within the last month, that would be silly. And that took so long that I'll have to do a separate post on my favorite comments. Perhaps tomorrow. I hope you all found something you enjoyed in all that.
And thank you, from the bottom of my little heart, for reading and sharing your own writing over the past year. Let's keep it going :)
