I propose an amendment

I forgot I was supposed to write a post, and my mental functions are shutting down to the point I can’t type, at the moment.

However, I note that apparently I was rather chipper yesterday, and wrote enough for two days.

I wonder if it would be in good interest to propose a weekly word goal instead of a daily goal? In the interest of generating more words that were worth reading and less words that were an effort of trying to type. . .actual words instead of mishmashed nonsense playing at the importance of actually making sense.

  1. I will start by saying you can do whatever you want, it doesn’t make a big deal to me. But I will point out that if you begin to excuse or make exceptions for everything you dislike you will find that, eventually, you’re not writing at all. Once you say you don’t have to write every day, you’ll say you’ll make up for it by a big post at the end of the week, and then the end of the week will come and you won’t have the energy to write that long post. So you won’t, and that week will go without any writing.

    . . . Let’s just say I have some experience with the mentality.

    It is my prediction that if you stop requiring daily posting this experiment will die rather quickly.

    Success in writing requires doing it even when you don’t feel like it, and even on the days when the product is not good. There are no real excuses.

    Of course, you have the liberty of deciding that you no longer find this writing a good use of your time. I just say don’t kid yourself over the path you are starting down.
