While we’re being honest, this post may be more for my personal reference than for anyone else, so I don’t lose these resources. But you may be interested in this stuff too. So here goes…
Creativity projects I don’t want to forget about!
Novels and Creative Writing
- nanowrimo.org …This will be my third year. I’ve not failed yet. Now, Camp Nano is another story… but November? I got this.
- napowrimo.net (which is in April) and its sister site, octpowrimo.com …both offer daily poem prompts for a month. I like poetry and intend to do it more often. I think the spring would be a good time.
- storyaday.org …during the month of May, write a short story every day. Simple. Quick.
- http://aroundofwordsin80days.wordpress.com/ …Just found out about this, and I like it a lot. Hence, the need for a blog.
- a-to-zchallenge.com or nablopomo …write a blog post for each letter of the alphabet (former) or just do a blog post every day (latter). The former runs in April, the latter during any month of your month.
Drawing / Visual Arts Projects
- http://www.24hourcomicsday.com/ …Always wanted to do a comic book. This one falls on one of the first few days of October. If you’re looking for a children’s book version of this during the spring/summer, check outwriteabookinaday.com …but this one has fees. May just want to do it yourself, for free.
- 30characters.com …asks for 30 characters in 30 days. Seems to be during November, but I see no reason why it couldn’t be done on your own at a different month.
- theawesomeladiesproject.com …always a big hit. When I can get to it.
- 365project.org …take a picture every day for a year. The budding photographer would like to take on this challenge. Maybe 2015 will be a good year for that sort of thing.
Songwriting / Music
- fawm.org …February Album Writing Month. For all you songwriters like me out there. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t make it in a month, but it would be fun to try! Another, larger version is by the same FAWMers: fiftyninety.fawmers.org
