A post a day until I hit 50,000 words. An exercise in speed writing for someone who is normally paragraph-challenged. Sorry if the content sucks. Please send me critiques; I will be very thankful.
- Build up a giant base of content. I have hundreds of text files of plans for posts that need to be converted into actual essays. Impetus? I’d just feel dreadfully uncomfortable otherwise. Also just a good idea to checkpoint your mental state every-so-often.
- Organize it all. Point out the posts that others liked the most and mark them as “read me first.” Categorize the rest.
- Move to a once-a-week or otherwise more sustainable timeline. That or stop writing and make another blog after 8 years or so.
