About three weeks ago, I started writing on this new intriguing platform (200wad). I had no expectations. I'm constantly trying out new things, especially writing platforms or anything remotely related to journaling whether it be digital or physical. On Medium, all the interesting stories were paywalled which was unfortunate, also there was something about medium that made me feel pressured to write a ton of paragraphs/pages. I can't write like that. I have to take it bit by bit and break it down. I'd rather write something huge over a week period than a day. I tried everything from Medium to Bullet Journaling. I actually still use my bullet journal but its just where I store my coding notes. I never was able to consistently use these things without it feeling like a massive chore/bore. However, on 200wad its actually kind of fun and I don't know why. At first I tried to come up with the next 200wad before the next day so as to avoid having an excuse not to write. I find it pretty difficult at times to come up with something to write about. I mainly use this platform for self reflection so I try to center my 200wads around that but often times I'm all out of ideas which is why I suggested this. I even got good enough by writing on here everyday to get the Foundation for Economic Education to accept one of my entries (although its not on their site yet).

    @jdaniel_richer Cool tip on writing there. At some point it'll be interesting to hear about everyone's own little tactics and tricks to sustain 200 words every day! Like a community collection of tips and tricks would be cool....right, @basilesamel ? ;)
