2012-366 Day 100 – Reflections

Woo, 100 posts! I’d like to take a few hundred words and reflect on what I’ve learned so far from this experience and, as usual, there’s not much you can do to stop me. I suppose you could always not read it, but if you decided to take that route you’re probably not reading this paragraph either.

I’m still not certain what I was thinking when I made the resolution to write everyday at the dawn of the New Year, and whether it’s been easier or harder than I expected. I knew ahead of time that finding something to write on for 366 days was going to be a challenge, but I’m not certain I was prepared for how soon that uncertainty became a reality. That being said, I’ve found it interesting how often some of these posts expand to a lot more than what I was anticipating. A prime example is the recent vacation recap I did; I had originally planned on doing a few hundred words wrapping everything up. I had thought I had covered most everything in the food section, but I was over 2000 words before I knew it. It was that sensation which I was looking to recapture when I started this project, sitting at the keyboard and having the words tumble out at a pace that is nearly too quick to keep up with. Having gotten to experience that feeling again (which I probably last felt in college) has already made writing everyday (even those that I didn’t want to) well worth it.

I will admit that hitting the triple digits is quite heartening and, while I will spend more time in the triple digits than I did in a double, it feels like a significant accomplishment in this project. I really appreciate all of you who are still checking out the entries, whether you’ve read every one or just check in from time to time. I hope that the little glimpse you’ve gotten into my understanding of the world has been, at the very least, somewhat interesting. While I maintain that I keep doing this mainly for myself, I certainly would be happiest if someone else got some enjoyment out of these posts too.

Thank you again for reading. Here’s to the triple digits, may we keep going strong!
