Which is why there is some poetic justice in discovering that the post scheduled for Friday night (the 12th) was, for whatever reason, posted only on Saturday, simultaneously doubling my post count for one day while shattering a month-long streak of 'relentless discipline'.
How did it happen? Nobody can say (maybe [email protected]). What I do know is that on the evening of Thursday the 11th, when I published my first private post and scheduled the others, I was not able to select an AM posting for the next day. The AM option was greyed out leaving only a 34 minute window before midnight on the 12th to schedule my post. It was weird but who am I to argue with software? So I set it for 11:26 PM on July 12th.
Clearly the scheduled posting module is buggy, if not because it doesn't post when it promises to post, then because it won't allow you to select an hour of your choosing - although, in my case, it failed at both. This is the beauty of software; 87% of the time it works all the time, the other 13% it is guaranteed to work only 'on my machine'.
So what's next? Probably going to start a writing cult where we write our way towards an inevitable mass suicide. We're going to be the kind of cult that appreciates the potency of a streak enough to build it up to a deadly finale when we all break it en masse. Or, you know, keep going on here and not worry about virtual depictions of writing productivity, like the #streak.
