365 words a day for 365 days

Sarah Harris in Southern California is writing 365 words a day for 365 days . She explains that it's about "Sharing my experiences from any point of my life (and life around me), but with mid-life job (since I'm presently unemployed) and life transitions, being a single parent, trying to redefine myself to hopefully bring along folks who want to have a friend to go through their own stuff with, or just help have a positive impact on life in general and make people feel better in the moment."




Why did you decide to do this project? When I ask myself the question: What would you do if you knew you could not fail? the answer is always "Write" but I was too intimidated to work on a large novel, or submit things to magazines or e-zines, even just web content jobs without more of a portfolio.  This gives me the discipline to write daily, in small daily amount so it's not too big a bite to take, plus share my experience with others.  I envision it as a daily cup of joe with friends!


How has doing a yearlong/daily project affected your life? So far, 28 days, it's been an immediate shift.  I look forward to it every day, I enjoy thinking about my topic - and photos - every day, writing it every night. I have also immensely enjoyed the steps to try to drive traffic to one's blog and am working on different things and learning a TON about social media so as a bonus, I'm receiving a new great skill set to make me more employable!
