PLEASE NOTE - THE 365 PROJECT ENDED IN MARCH 2011 WHILE LIVING IN SCOTLAND - BUT THE BLOGS CONTINUE, JUST NOT AT THE SAME GRUELING PACE. TO FIND OUT WHAT THE 365 PROJECT WAS, PLEASE READ THE ORIGINAL PROJECT DESCRIPTION BELOW.
I've always written what I was thinking or feeling. It's served to be rather therapudic in so many ways. I can't help but think that with time and effort my writing has gotten profoundly better over the years. On the rare occasion I read something I had forgotten I ever wrote in the first place, I often see a wide variety of differences that I then plunge myself into in order to explore them fully and discover something about myself.
After many years of writing and sharing stories with anyone willing to read or listen to them, I decided finally to listen to my readers. Many people asked me to publish a book, but I knew with the times being what they are, this would be a nearly impossible endeavor. Instead, backed with much moral support from my friends, supporters, listeners and readers, I formulated a plan.
On March 30th of 2010 I took on a writing project I thought was worthy of my time. I began a project that I would later call The "365" Project.
When I first started this blog, that's all it was - a blog. I didn't have any intention of it turning into what it has become. I saw it as the chance to write, to tell my stories and to have somewhere I can go whenever I need to refference one of my adventures while talking with someone. Instead, I began to write every single day, always adding something to my personal library. Before long, I discovered that it was rightfully obvious that this was what I was meant to do.
In 365 days from the start date, I will have 365 blogs written and published for the world to read. At the end of the 365 days, I will have a vast assortment of other blogs that I didn't get around to sharing. After the projet is finished, the next step will be to try and become published in some form.
Each story in The "365" Project will be a true story, written from the heart and felt to the very core of my being.
