About our blog:
Making It Daily is a shared blog. In 2013, Claire, KHP and Kristen R. launched this blog as a way to track ourselves as we tackled three different 365 projects:
Claire: Wrote every day
KHP: Made art every day
Kristen R: Ran every day
We did these things every day for one full year. And now, we use this blog as a way to stay connected to another.
Although we still each carve out a little time every week to do these things, we take turns posting occasionally. We're busy working moms, partners, runners, writers, artists and more -- just trying to make it daily.
Got a passion? Join us in making it daily.

When I teach symbol analysis in my classes, my technique is to have students draw a T chart and list the literal details (using actual quotations) an author uses to describe an object on one side of the chart, then … Continue reading
After a few days to decompress, the world is definitely less blurry than it was when I got home from the Colonial200 Relay Saturday night. I was sore for a couple of days, dead tired, and I can’t seem to shake … Continue reading
