I started writing to become an editor for my faculty’s law review. Before then, I had been writing lazily. Writing for a law review is a lot of work and research, a tad overwhelming.

I started writing on 200 words a day because I was sad and it felt like no one listened to me. Then I realized writing had streaks. Oh how I love streaks!

I now have a different reason to write. It is no longer because I am sad but because I dread losing my streak. My Bible app has streaks too. I have been very diligent for 329 days because keeping my streak gives my life order and purpose.

It is a weird feeling. A little hard to explain to people. The streak has however helped me. I write more, I read more, I do more lazy research and now, I know more.

I have written stories, letters, rant series and faux deep philosophical posts. I now look forward to writing.

This has helped tremendously and even writing legal essays is no longer tedious.

Keeping the streak on my Bible app is a lot easier, than maintaining the streak here. I only have to open the Bible app to keep my streak going, but here, I must write. Many times, I’m in no mood to write. There are days so bad, I just want to fold up and hide away from the world, but the fear of losing my streak is my sole motivation. It’s easier now and it feels like a part of me. Like eating, writing features on my to-do list daily.

I am both shocked and impressed by the dedication and commitment shown.

It’s a month of writing and I’m overly excited.
