This past weekend I was working on a To-Do list and the question of what to write during the 100 Days of Writing Project came up and I was overwhelmed by all the different things I wanted to write about. In a way, I felt guilt and shame for having the desire to write it all and depriving myself of time to write at all. I felt like I should have already written an article from my dissertation or that I wasted money on an art project that I never finished that would tell my story. I have dreamt of finishing by small book of poems. I want to finish my “resume” on what makes me a great life partner. There’s so many options, almost too many to know where to begin.
It’s a funny thing how the universe works, because my co-creator of the 100 Days of Writing Project posted a question to the Facebook group,
What do you wish to write?
Such a simple question and yet it had brought up a lot of emotions for me and no clear answers. I do not know what I will write about for 100 days. I know this journey that I am on to get into a writing practice that fits my desires will be a long and windy road. What I do know, is that I just wish to write. And that is what I will do!
