I discovered 200 words a day through the Product Hunt Makers Festival.

The first time I tried it, I was in a cafe on the Gold Coast. I had sat down to afternoon tea before a workshop and I had some spare time.

I wrote 200 words about why wearing white is risky.

It took a month and a half for me to return on 6 March 2019.

Since that day, I have broken the streak only once.

I got back on the horse the next day. It was a bit of a mental battle.

For me, writing daily is about keeping the tap on. I find that tap difficult to turn on. Maybe 18 months ago, I worked hard to turn it on. Now that it's on, I work to keep it on.

I'm lucky to be something of a working writer. I write content, strategy, and copy for a living. I get to make things.

I don't think I could sustain that work without this beautiful supportive community. There is inherent emotional risk with putting out creative work for a living. The good enough question comes up. Imposter syndrome lurks. The fraud police alerts come up on your radar.

And my answer is to just keep writing.

Just keep writing.
