Legend has it that anyone who folds a thousand paper cranes is granted a wish.
My wish is to become a great writer and storyteller. So I’m planning to write (actually, print) a little story on each one, and pray as I fold it for my wish to come true. Hopefully all the writing practice will help! It’ll also give me a repertoire of stories of a tellable length.
I’m getting sponsored for Dogs Trust. Their wish is to bring about the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. I talk more about Dogs Trust and why I chose them here.
If you’d like to join in, check out my sponsorship page or just text BOSE75 followed by the amount (£1-5 or £10) to 70070.
You do not have to sponsor me to hang out here. I want a community, not just money, and I will never pressure you or guilt you.
I’m starting this on November 1, 2011 (because it’s Mary Poppins’s birthday.) My aim will be to finish the project in a year – that’s an average of 19-20 stories a week.
I procrastinate a LOT, so this is going to be a real challenge for me. I’m planning to
complain share my experiences on the blog as I get to grips with this challenge, and I’m hoping it’ll provide some useful learnings, empathy or at least a good laugh for other creative types who struggle with procrastination.
I’ll also be blogging all the stories I write, and of course plenty of gratuitous cute dog pictures.
