A Year of Love Letters

I love a creative challenge. Although I try to make plenty of time to indulge in creativity on the reg, having a structured regimen really helps me to adhere to a project until it’s completed.

A few years ago I participated in the 100 Day Project for the FIRST time and attempted to write 100 poems. I came SO CLOSE but that pesky international move was a real interruption. You can check out the poems on Instagram under the hashtag #100HalitraxPoems.

Some were sweet.

And some were silly.

Last year I took another run at the 100 days by writing 100 Beautiful Affirmations — and this time I FINISHED! YAY

I am a force for change

In 2019 I’m pursuing a year of small indulgences, including more time for the creativity that fills me up. Instead of waiting for the 100 day challenge, I’m starting now with a whole year of love letters — at least a few every month.

I’ll share some directly here on the blog and others will take the form of my other fave hobby: writing snail mail!

I hope you enjoy following this year of love letters.

#The100DayProject

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll have noticed that my feed is a bit different lately. That’s because I’m participating in The 100 Day Project!

Never heard of it? Well neither had I, that is, until my creative bestie, Leah, posted up her plan to participate with 100 days of Colour Palettes! Pretty cool, eh?

100 day project

The project was created by artist Elle Luna. It’s a free global art project in which anyone can participate. Personally, I was feeling the need to do more creative writing so I decided to jump in head first with 100 days of poems. Yikes.

So, if you’re a fan of this type of community art creating, I encourage you to follow along. My personal hashtag is #100Halitraxpoems and I’m really enjoying the challenge so far. (And what a challenge it is!)

The best part is just taking a minute to write. I’ve set very few rules for myself in this challenge. Do the poems have to be good? No way! They just have to be poems. I’m hoping my writing will improve along the way. I mean, after 100 days of practice it better!

Wish me luck to make it until July 12!

What kinds of creative endeavours are you pursuing lately?

Monthly Moodboard: April

April is about letting the creativity flow. I’m starting the 100 Day Project on April 4th and will be attempting to indulge in a creative interest of mine for 100 days straight. (I’ll be blogging more about that later. In the meantime, you can follow along on instagram @Halitrax & #the100dayproject).

Here’s to imagination, creative immersion, and new projects!
