TL:DR - Saturdays are for reports of how my week has been on my journey to become a better writer.

After a long hiatus, i came back to 200WAD on New Years Day. The feeling was great. I was pumped, stoked, gingered, [insert your favorite motivational word]. 

My come back post was spontaneous, so it didn't require too much thought. I just let it out.

Then the next day. I had an idea of what to write. I picked a pen and began writing. After a couple of minutes, i couldn't feel the flow and the idea just seem incoherent the more i write.

I tore the sheet of paper and took a break.

After some time i picked up my pen again to develop some thoughts into words. 

Guess what?

What happened earlier happened again. 

No problem, i said. I went about other stuffs thinking another beautiful thought would rise. It didn't happen.

Less than an hour left before 200WAD starts a new day. I picked up phone and typed something, i didn't even care if it would make sense or not. I didn't wanna break my streak because i have learn't that showing up daily in anything you're doing matters a lot.

When i saw the first comment on the post the next day, i was glad my nonsense wasn't a complete nonsense after all.

All the while, i've noticed some 200WAD writers seem to write in series or they write a "book" one article/chapter per day. I copied that and started Starter Notes the next day.

Writing a body of idea/thought one article/chapter per day has been helpful. Now i'm not at loss at what to write the next day, the ideas flows easily and when i'm stuck i just research online.

If you've read this far, thank you. I wanted to stop earlier but it's 20:18 right now in Lagos Nigeria I had a busy day and typing this has been therapeutic. Since my major goal here is to become a better writer, i continued.

Thanks for reading my highly unorganized week 1 report.
