Project 313 – Post No. 300

Wow . . . 300 . . . I’m getting close to completing this thing, ain’t I?

There’s a bit of relief and a bit of sadness in contemplating the end of Project 313. I admit cursing to myself soon after I started the project. I mean, what the heck had I gotten myself into? 85% of one year dedicated to a silly idea actualized by an impulsive act of hubris.

My regular posting suffered as I dedicated significant effort to Project 313. I used to be clever, innovative, different, annoying, and even bold in the offerings adorning these pages. Instead, now, the same thing on a page every day for 313 days.

Well, it’s almost over . . .  

And, now, the photo:

Project 313 300

Honest, if you could see how bland the original photo presents itself, you’d be amazed at the transformation. HERE, look. 

. . . but, whatever it is, I wouldn’t want it chasing me. 

I normally link a previous post up above the photo. For some reason, today, I link two test pieces for the 2014 NaNoWriMo effort (HERE and HERE) . . . after the nicely framed photo.

One of those two pieces ended up as a novel. A novel I like and hope to one day see distributed to more than a couple loyal blog readers.

And now, the cartoon.

You only have another few seconds to see the humor before we have to move on.

And now . . . Idle Minds Make Lines — Cartoonified.

Idle Minds Make Lines — Cartoonified

And . . . that’s it

Some of these posts will likely be longer as the mood hits me, but most will be thus; short, uninteresting, bland, and relentless.

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

  1. I once did 365 days but I confess that I scheduled!


    • disperser says:

      I really don’t like the idea of 365 projects. Few people keep up with them and — much like my own Project 313 — after a while, the entries start to all blend in together. Many people lose interest and appear to phone it in and readers also lose interest because of the daily repetition (same with my project . . . except I try to not phone it in).

      Because of my current circumstances, the only way I can meet the commitment is to schedule them ahead of time.


  2. very interesting post !


    • disperser says:

      Really? You’re not just saying that?

      I mean, what makes it more interesting than, say, the other 299 posts like it?

      I don’t mean to pressure you, but this looks a lot like an effort to advertise. My apology if it’s not and if you’re truly and honestly enthralled by my efforts . . . but understand that I get a lot of these kinds of generic comments from people selling stuff.


  3. 13 to go If I had any religion I’d say thank god for that!

    That stump does look like a ghostly figure chasing . . . or being chased. Either way, not a reassuring sight . . .


  5. Well, I am sad that the project is coming to an end. :-(
    But, I admire that you did it, and it was fun! :-)

    PHOTO: Spooky! Alien-y!
    CARTOON: HA! I snorted! Did Martin do other “Trouble” “Real Trouble” comics? (I can’t remember) That’s very clever and could be an ongoing thing!
    DOODLE: OOH! I really dig this cartoonified version! If I live to be 150, I’ll still be enjoying cartoons and comics!
    HUGS!!! :-)

      I enjoyed doing it . . . but I’m also glad I’m about done with it.

      Yeah . . . Once I got done with it, I decided to not walk alone into any forest. Also, it reminds me a bit of Scarecrow (Batman movies). Either way, no woods for me.

      Martin did many Trouble/Real Trouble cartoons. Don’t know that he was the originator but he used the motif in many of his efforts.

      Thank you, Carolyn. If you do live to 150, I hope to still be providing you with cartoons and comics.
