Sticking to the script

One of my goals is to write every day, even if it’s only a few lines.

I’m also traveling right now. In addition to the benefits that writing regularly provides, writing under these circumstances is giving me the following insights:

  1. It is positively asinine to wait until the night before a post needs to go live to write it
  2. The daily habit of writing really does keep the subconscious churning away on ideas
  3. Being in the posture of writing regularly turns you into a keen observer of everything
  4. When you read less, the frequency of insight drops dramatically
  5. When your body needs sleep, writing something of substance is incredibly challenging
  6. Staring at a blank WordPress post screen is at times terrifying
  7. Lists are always the right answer (I think)
  8. It’s worth it
