Articles and authors from this website that impressed me this week

Reading @basilesamel's article on his philosophy of gradual self-improvement and how it shaped the creation of 200 WaD got me thinking. 

If you peel back the layers behind interesting people, there is usually a philosophy that drives them forward. These philosophies can be ancient and from different cultures or even homegrown such as @abrahamKim 's but I found that clear and considered thinking provides to a stable and fertile foundation from which things just inevitably seem to happen. It's almost like this website was a deterministic outcome of the Kaizen philosophy that @basilesamel adopted.

When you have a philosophy that drives you, you need to see it through. @jessica 's article on moving like an iceberg reminded me in a poetic way that it is important to have faith in yourself and staying modest whilst building/writing/making is a valuable way to be.

Special mentions

Raw and engaging 'Dark fast writing' from @Dinosaur.

This piece was inspired by @gabrielgreco 's tongue-in-cheek article about 200 WaD being like a high school. I've been impressed by directness and quality by many of you. There is a motley community growing here, like a beautiful fungus.
