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.
In 2018, we're back to audience participation as friends and family will write titles and I will write the content to go with those suggested titles.
2019 is all about being in the present moment: what makes today a special day? This blog will be about the big impact of seemingly little things.
