On crossing 100 out of 1000 days on the challenge, which originated conceptually as 1000 Songs In 1000 Days but in effect was 2000 Songs In 1000 Days from the very start, encompassing both 1000 Songs In 1000 Days and A Children’s Song A Day (composing both music and lyrics for two songs a day, followed by producing and publishing both songs on the same day, all of which is done by yours truly, Swapna Abraham, with the objective of doing something most challenging and fulfilling as an individual and singer-songwriter).
Introduction and Bibliography
The challenge started on 8th April, 2017 and is aimed to be completed on 1st January, 2020; but will be continued for another 22 days to maintain exclusivity to the author of the challenge for 1000 days.
The definition of “day” in the challenge is a day from 00:00 hours to 24:00 hours in Dubai, UAE (as per Gulf Standard Time), where the challenge is based by and large. Portability will involve pegging the challenge to the same time zone.
The work is done afresh each day with absolutely no pre-work on either song.
The composition of the song on 1000 Songs In 1000 Days is recorded live on Facebook Live - https://www.facebook.com/swapnaabraham1000songsin1000days. The song on A Children’s Song A Day is done immediately before or after the same, and its composition has been recorded live only from Day 209/1000 - https://www.facebook.com/achildrenssongaday.
The genesis, scope, methodology and result of the challenge in its entirety are well-listed on the following platforms:-

What crossing 100/1000 meant to me…
The eternal optimist – One tenth over
The factual pragmatist – Nine tenth remains
