Jessica Mills in Albuquerque, New Mexico is writing Daily2012Haiku inspired by the prompts from 365: A Daily Creativity Journal...

We marched through the snow
like a family of ducks
shaking tail feathers.  

Why did you decide to do this project? Last year, 2011, I aimed to write a haiku a day.  I fell a bit short of my goal at 311 haikus for the year.  Reading through them, they read like a personal journal, so I probably wouldn't share half of them with an audience.  When my mom gave me your book for Christmas, "365: A Daily Creativity Journal," it inspired me to try again this year, and to use the prompts in the book.  I think the promts will help direct me away from personal journal style haikus and towards ones to share with an audience via a blog.

How has doing a yearlong/daily project affected your life? This is the 4th yearlong / daily project I've attempted.  Each time, it's been enjoyable, though each time I've fallen a tad short of my goal.  This year, 2012, is the first time I've done so using a public format and so far I've noticed that it challenges me to be more thoughtful and has me feeling a bit vulnerable.  Regardless, it's fun and a great way for me to clear out the brain cobwebs!

Exactly who makes
money worth more than paper
and those who print it?
