I never liked writing.
But the thing is... I actually do like writing. I don't know if I'm any good at it, but if I don't do it, I'll never have the chance to get better.
In elementary, and high school, when it was time to write an essay, it took me an hour to fill an A4 page. Everyone else just wrote, wrote, wrote, and I was sitting there, trying to come up with something meaningful. Something perfect. I think this was my problem. I wanted it to be perfect. And when I thought I nailed it, the teacher said it's really good, but too short. That I won't get a good grade because of that.
Honestly, that's still my problem. And not just with writing. I have so many personal projects that I've worked on and then left them, just before they were ready to be launched. I was afraid what people would say, because those projects were not perfect.
I'm done with that. I want to put things out in the world even if they're not perfect.
I like the idea of 200 words per day. Short and sweet. I probably won't do it every day, because my schedule is quite busy these days, and when I have some free time I like to go out in nature. I'll try to write something at least once a week.
Oh look, I passed the 200 words mark. Yay.
