In 2011, I made my first New Year's Resolution ever and it was to write every day. I created the Three Hundred Sixty-five for Two Thousand Eleven blog as a result. This collection of writing spans every genre and was dictated solely by whatever my creative whim of the day was.
In 2012, I kicked the resolution up a notch and decided to write an original piece of fiction every day. I asked friends and family to provide me with first lines that I used to complete this 366 pieces of fiction collaboration. The things you can do with a little help from your friends...
In 2013, the daily blogging continued, this time with the Triple Play. Once again, I asked friends and family to help, this time by giving me three things that I needed to incorporate into an original piece of writing, genre of my choosing.
2014 was all about what we could write together. This choose-your-own-adventure style blog started each day with me writing and ended each day with you voting for what happened next.
2015, I invited you all to sing along. This blog is all about the music. I used songs to inspire each day's piece.
In 2016, we learned our ABC's. Every day's piece was inspired by a letter of the alphabet. Thanks for playing along with me!
My original plan for 2017, was to be inspired by what inspires you, but as 2016 came to a close, I started thinking about how much I am inspired by you, my friends, family, community, country, and world-at-large, that I am going to write about moments where you -- the world around me -- has changed my way of thinking or altered my path in a momentous way. I am hoping that I can spend 2017 encouraging love, ne ideas, and the empowerment of thought and action to yield something awesome.
