This is being posted late because I wanted to do my daily writing first. Why was that important?
Today was a special day. Today marked the 900th day in a row of writing for me.
That's 900 days of getting at least a few words down. That's doing it despite fatigue, sickness, and grief. That's squeezing it in when I've been busy and burning the midnight oil to finish a project.
It feels good to hit it. For me, a streak is incredibly motivating. The longer it goes, the harder it is to break. I can look at the march of stars on my calendar and see that every day, I accomplished this one thing.
Will it last forever? Who knows? So far, Covid hasn't stopped it, a death in the family hasn't stopped it, my lack of discipline hasn't stopped it. I'm not saying it can't be stopped. But so far, it's healthy.
My next goal? 1,000 days, of course.
What motivates you in your passion?
