Hey all! So, I wrote this a bit ahead of time, gave myself a bit of time to think about it, but here’s the gist: for the duration of this month, I’m going to try to write a post every day, with a goal range of ‘meh, 300+ words or so?’ each. The idea is to get myself doing a bit more writing, work those mental muscles so that it won’t be as big a shock when I have to write essays for school. Plus, working out mental muscles? You should never look down on that as an activity.
Anyhow, a bit of fine print on this quest: I’m giving myself three passes, which I’ll save for stuff like “had to spend twenty hours working on a last-minute project” and other ridiculousness like that. When life dumps a truckload of lemons on me, basically. Other than that, I’ve also got a post or two that I was keeping in my drafts, either unfinished or just waiting for the right time to be posted, that I’ll use in order to keep myself from needing to cash in one of those passes. It’s a goal, we’ll see how it works out. And who knows, this is only supposed to last a month, but I might wind up having so much fun I won’t want to stop.
An important note: I’ll be using prompts for a lot of these posts, and if you’re reading and come up with something you want to say in response to my post, or want to write something of your own, go for it! The comments section is there for a reason, and that reason is that shouting into a void is boring.
(Oh, and if anyone is the curious sort, when I’m getting prompts from these, they’re coming from the Prompts feature of Day One for Mac, which is a wonderful app that I use all the time in concert with Day One for iOS. I might get prompts elsewhere on occasion, in which case I’ll state where in the post.)
