    @jasonleow Love the list. Putting things down like that helps a lot when you're not sure what to write about next

    @jasonleow I have to implement this as a feature: a dead-simple wish list for writing

      @basilesamel Yes! Like a to-do list yes, with checks you can create/check off easily. Future versions could have labels for prioritisation perhaps? Or scheduled alerts? Or kanban style drag drop?! (Hahah sorry got over-enthusiastic there please ignore)...

      @wernminlim oh that list has no timeline to it. It'll be too much tbh if I have to write everything by 31 Dec 2018 haha. I think lists help when stuck, but as a rule I try to write stuff that I'm feeling for the day, even if it's not on the list.
