It never feels like I am ready to start blogging. Maybe I just have to dive in. For now, at least, I'd rather keep my focus on being more consistent with 200WAD. I came here with the intention of improving my writing so that I could eventually begin writing longer form content. I have a draft of my first blog post in its early stages on Medium, but it has a long way to go.
When the time is right I will set atomic goals for this blog post (just listened to the 10% Happier With Dan Harris featuring James Clear, the author of Atomic Habits). These will most likely include contributing 100 new, quality words each day to the draft. Keeping it small can go a long way. Before I know it the post will be finished and I can publish it. The post will be deeply personal and covers a significant transition in my life. As such, it requires more thought and planning than an average 200WAD post. But writing here will pave the way for that.
I don't know when I will be ready to continue working on the draft. If I keep writing here every day for at least a month without breaking my streak, maybe then it will be the time. Once the writing becomes an ingrained habit again, I can up my writing and contribute both here and to the draft in a given day.
