"I'm just doing word vomit because... why not?"
200 words per days seems very manageable compared to, for example, 750 words. Writing in volume has always been hard for me. Right now I'm just doing word vomit because (like the title says) why not?
I want to write fiction but the creative part is hard. I can come up with characters and situations but I usually get tired of them pretty quickly. I'm not sure how to solve that problem.
This is harder than I expected, trying to hit 200 words, probably because I'm not writing about anything in particular. I also wonder if it's better to use this site or if I could get equally good results just typing into a Google Doc or whatever.
I have a Twitter friends who does a lot of journaling, which I've always been impressed by. Building habits and sticking to them is difficult. Anything that involves cognitive effort and pushing through boredom is a struggle for. I can do it sometimes, if I'm sufficiently motivated... deadlines have been known to work. But I realize when my deadlines are fake so the self-imposed ones are much less effective.
Okay, I'm really close to 200 words now. I guess that makes me feel pleased since it didn't take very long.
