Today I’m introducing my project for March: Project “Daily Dispatch”. Something new and unusual from all my previous blog posts to celebrate 100 original posts on prospermind and to change things up a bit. I got the idea from the book “Show Your Work” by Austin Kleon, an excellent book full of advice for (aspiring) writers or any creative out there really.
The idea behind Daily Dispatch is to share something every day to show what I’m working on right now. Quite simple, however it’s not as simple as it sounds as I don’t want this project to turn into some sort of human spam. The purpose of this is simply to share, but not overshare.
I want to share with you, little pieces of the process and progress of being an amateur. Those little pieces might be influential, inspiring or just pieces of my work in progress. My goal is to invite anyone interested to be part of my journey to become a better writer. As difficult as it may sound, I want to invite you into the depths of my note books, share and let you see ideas as raw and unpolished as they appear.
Furthermore I invite anyone interested to participate. Share your thoughts, share your experience, share your work even, simply share. Let’s not give in to the pressure to self edit or obsess too much, let’s not worry about the quality of our work too much, let’s simply create, learn, grow and repeat. Let’s become better amateurs day by day.
For me writing is what makes my heart tingle, this is what I love and simply because of that, I’m sharing my work process and my progress as an amateur with the world, accessible to all.
Personally I’m quite excited about this project, especially about its outcome. The hardest part of this is going to be the part of coming up with something to share every day for the next month. I didn’t prepare anything for this, I’m just going to jump into the cold water and see what happens. I’m simply going to take this day by day.
See you soon.
