I need to create more. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that I consume a lot. Throughout my day, I am reading blogs, watching videos, listening to music, etc. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. My problem is that I do a little too much mindless consumption. Sometimes, I find myself watching a YouTube video or a stream on Twitch and I think to myself, "I'm not even enjoying this."

Yet, I still watch it.

I'm a big believer that people have this innate desire to make things. This can take a lot of different forms. When I spend my all of my free time browsing the internet, I feel crappy about it. Deep down I want to create things, but it is hard to get started.

I am a software developer by trade. In the past, I have made attempts at working on code daily. Lately, I have not made the time to work on projects. My free time is dominated with consumption.

I think this 200WAD challenge is a great way to get me started on making SOMETHING. Any day where I create something is a win for me, whether it is lines of code in a script, or a small post on here.

This is a bit of a stream of thoughts, but it is a start.
