I discovered #the100dayproject on Instagram in 2015. This is the fourth year I’m participating. It’s a project in which you’re challenged to create something every day for 100 days. It can be ANYTHING. My writing mojo had vanished so I decided to create a haiku* every day. In 2015 and 2016 I wrote haikus. In 2017 I added a little twist – I wrote haikus on sticky notes and left them around my neighbourhood and the places I frequent, spreading little bits of happiness and joy.
This year I am trying my hand at something completely different. Inspired by the photographic work of David Hockney, work he termed ‘joiners‘, I am creating my own photocollages for 100 days.
*A haiku is a highly structured short poem. Traditionally, it consists of 3 lines with a syllable count for each line; 5 syllables for the first line, 7 for the second, and 5 for the third.
