so I started the list project about a year ago. I wanted to see what a year of list-making might look like. 52 weeks later and I am only a little over halfway done. the original idea was to have a weekly creative writing exercise in place should words fail me (and so often, they fail me). but, as it turns out, I am unable to rattle off lists week after week. I get an idea for a list and sometimes I like to sit on it for a while, come back to it when I'm ready. I write and re-write, contemplate topics, vacillate between yes and no. the very obstacles I was looking to avoid. the project took on a completely different life (as personal creative projects so often do) and at some point, I had to let go of the 52 weeks thing. I am definitely a girl who needs a deadline but I am also a girl who tries to recognize when to let go.
and so I continue on with the project (because I really do love the project) and I do intend to finish. just might take a little longer than originally planned. 21 more lists to go and one on deck for this afternoon. and to that, I say: yay.
