100 Day Challenge

2016

Welcome to the 6th annual 100 day challenge!

Yes it is that time of year again, where I try and combat the meh of Writers Block, Artistic Avoidance, and a general all round lack of enthusiasm with the 100 day challenge based on The 100 day challenge. The last few years have led to two published short stories, and contributed to a little book of poetry. Who knows what this year will bring.

Once again the rules are pretty straightforward. The event is 100 Days long, and for each of those 100 days, something creative must be done. This “Creativeness” can be either a stand alone bit of art, writing, poetry, interpretive dance, etcetera or a larger piece worked on over any number of days. In the case of the larger pieces of work, daily updates must be posted to avoid any claims of “cheating”.

This year  @MaguirePete is again joining in with the challenge, and We see the return of the original 100Dayer DemonPengu. So, Pens at the ready, the 100 Days starts on April 1st!

Note: It also helps that we are both “slightly” competitive over these things, and neither will want to be the first to fail, which will help encourage us to complete the challenge.

A new year, A new 100 days.

2013

It’s that time of year again, where I try and combat the meh of Writers Block, Artistic Avoidance, and a general all round lack of enthusiasm with our private 100 day challenge based on The 100 day challenge. Again it is @DemonPengu, YoYoMan, and Myself.

@MaguirePete will also be returning this year after negotiations for a rule tweak** to enable him to go on his family holiday in June. So Starting May 1st we will be doing a creative thing a day for 100 days.

As with The challenge the creative thing can be, drawings, art, poetry, writing, anything as long as its creative (and one piece a day)

**His 100 days is having a break for his holiday and he will go May->8days in June -> July->August

2012

Once again @DemonPengu and I have decided to fight the meh of Writers Block, Artistic Avoidance, and a general all round lack of enthusiasm in the Office with our own private 100 day challenge It’s not The 100 day challenge (Because we missed that again). This year we have a new participant @MaguirePete joining us in an attempt to restart the creative juices flowing. So a day was picked “The 1st of July” as Day 1: (Well this way it does not clash with NaNoWriMo or the run up to Christmas) and for the next 100 days we will be doing a creative thing a day.

As with The challenge the creative thing can be, drawings, art, poetry, writing, anything as long as its creative (and one piece a day)

So everyone wish me luck, and words of encouragement welcome, for I can not let the the others Win!

Note: It also helps that we are all “slightly” competitive over these things, and no one will want to be the first to fail, which will help encourage us to complete the challenge.

I have along with @DemonPengu decided to take part in a 100 Day Challenge. It’s not The 100 day challenge (Because we missed that) But A 100 day challenge. Basically there has been a bit of Writers Block, Artistic Avoidance, and a general all round lack of enthusiasm in the Office of late. So after spotting the challenge online, we decided we would do our own in an attempt to restart the creative juices flowing. So a day was picked “Monday 12th September” as Day 1: and for the next 100 days we will both be doing a creative thing a day.

As with The challenge the creative thing can be, drawings, art, poetry, writing, anything as long as its creative (and one piece a day)

So everyone wish me luck, and words of encouragement welcome, for I can not let the DemonPenguin Win!
