I started an enjoyable writing project last month, that I’m calling A HUNDRED CUPS OF COFFEE. It is somewhat inspired by Patti Smith’s M TRAIN–one of the most incredible books on the life of a writer that I’ve ever read. Her book is a window into consciousness. And also has a lot of coffee.
The project is as follows:
1. Go somewhere and
2. Drink a cup of coffee and
3. Write a short piece
No strict timeline for the project–it isn’t daily or once a week, just in a timely fashion.
No set subject–although they are emerging.
It’s a bit scary–observation always is. There are a few worrisome things in my life, and yes, I’m forced to address them. I also wanted the pieces to be varied. The Tune-Up paean below is one section. So are the haiku about my father’s death.
Is anyone doing a similar project? Advice? Requests?
