Sorry for the clickbait title :)

The real thing that happened next was that I wrote my daily words.

I am settling into this habit of writing a bit more now.  I am still not really sure what I should be writing, but I still manage to mentally vomit something on to the page.  I suspect writing by hand would be much harder.

I do wonder what benefit this habit will have though.  At the moment it is not having much effect on me (I don't think, anyway).  I enjoy the process and the habit of tea, cat, laptop, quiet house - so maybe that is what I can take away from this.

I suppose that I should just be appreciative of being able to write for 10 minutes, 200 words, a spark of thoughts or a flash of inspiration first thing in the morning, when I am usually either rushing around getting ready to leave the house, or am swiping through social media, trying to get some sort of dopamine fix.

I also have a guilty feeling that I should be writing these 200 words on one of my websites to take them forward.  I have so many unfinished articles written, half baked ideas and doughy intentions.  I was hoping that 200wad would spur me on to do work there too - perhaps that is a different habit I need to cultivate.

Daily Gratitude: My son is in a band, getting to do the work he loves - for that I am appreciative.

Daily 200wad idea: (this is a new feature where I consider how 200wad might be improved) I wish there was a way to see how many people had read your work.  The only way to receive or provide feedback is via a comment, maybe just a like or clap type button would do?

    @twizzle I was debating whether I should reward your clickbait title with a comment, much less actually reading your post. Keep writing every day. When you reach 30 days and join #Teamstreak you may start to feel some momentum.

    @twizzle The title worked ;) Keep writing! You'll never know what gems might be hidden inside you. They will only come out when you keep going and going.
