100 DAYS PROJECT: LIGHT and LIFE begins July 11.2014

Taking inspiration from a fellow FB participant, Julie,
who issued this invitation ~
"Here in New Zealand we have a creative project called 100 days. The idea is to choose something creative to do every day, for 100 consecutive days. It isn't about perfection, but something achievable that will stimulate creativity in your life.  It is also open to anyone on planet earth to join this creative opportunity.
It starts tomorrow 11 July, so take a look at 
if you are keen to know more."

Since I was keen to know more, I checked it out and ended with
my own registration...

My intentions are to begin the 
100 Days Project ~ Projet 100 jours
as of July 11th and to begin
here's my 1st photo of
'Lumiere et la Vie'
'Light and Life'...

Here's what I discovered  ~
This is the 4th year
Emma Rogan of NZ has organized and offered her creativity project motivator - my first year to learn of it.  Thanks, Julie!
The 100 Days Project is simple - Le projet 100 jours est simple
Choose one creative exercise, and then repeat it every day for 100 days. Record each daily effort and see what evolves in the work and in the self over time.
The project gives anyone a framework and the permission to be creative. It challenges you to dig deep into your creative reserves, to rely on your readiness to work in order to achieve creative breakthrough. It can be an end to procrastination, and the development of resilience. It takes a lot of energy, and yet the rewards can resonate for a long time after the 100th Day is over.
In 2011 Emma Rogan* decided to start a 100 Days Project after reading about Michael Bierut’s ‘100 Days of Design’ class at Yale. She invited others to join her and word of the project spread. Since inception hundreds of people have participated in the project.
This 100 Days Project is not a commercial undertaking, and is not in any way (but spirit) affiliated with the Yale School of Art. Good things will come from the rigorous repetition of a process or idea over the 100 days. To see what others have done before, have a look at the previous projects.
Early yesterday I took the leap and registered.
Later in the evening I put time into considering what I could realistically commit to without getting overwhelmed or unable to continue.  What I decided on is a photo or quote illustrating my 'Light and Life'.
'Lumiere et la Vie'
Click to find and follow LIGHT and LIFE  and be sure to send some encouraging comments if you see I've been MIA !
How many others have heard of the project?
Are you participating?
If so, I'd love to favourite and follow yours too!
Just let me know your link in comments below or on my fb page.

I'm anticipating some challenges and more good outcomes...

Wow. This is an amazing idea. I've never heard of it, but I'm intrigued. 100 days. What could I do? I'm thinking of a daily photo of something that brought me joy that day... I need to check this out.

What a clever idea. This is new to me. I am not on everyday so I need to think about this, but it would be a great push.
Thanks for all the info,

This looks like such a wonderful idea. I wish I could join in but I just know I couldn't keep up-I don't know how you do it all!

Thanks for joining the Say G'day Saturday linky party. I will be featuring you and your blog this Friday because you are my Pinning Blogger of the Week! Yay!

Best wishes and happy Thursday!
