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

I lost my writing streak this week. 

Very painful. 

I lost it on Monday. A very hectic day. I don't want to moan about how it happened.

Let's see how far i can run again.

@BrandonWilson asked if writing daily is an habit yet.

Well, not yet really.

Often on busy days, I forget about 200 words a day completely.

But then, my writing has improved. I know it.

After losing the streak on Monday, I lost energy such that, I didn't write again until Thursday. 

On Thursday I wrote about indie digital products makers who inspire me. I should write the continuation, i'm not sure when.

On Friday, I wrote about why you should write a letter to your younger self. I wrote that because my topic of week suggestion finally got selected and I felt it would be nice if folks who want to write on it have a guide of some sort. I hope it helps.

200 words a day is spelt C O M M I T M E N T.

I will keep at it.

    @seunoyebode, you're the one who suggested the topic to write to your younger self?! I just found out about 200wordsaday yesterday, and it was such a wonderful and easy topic to start my writing. I'm planning on doing it for 7 days, and might even turn it into a little book for parents to read to their children. Thank you so much for being here and just keep coming back, even if you miss - water under the bridge. Today is when we can do what we plan.

      @juliebrowne Thank you so much @juliebrowne . Seven days? No problem, i'll read everyone of it. I read your first two, awesome. they are very good. About the book, i mentioned it in one of mine too. The topic is an awesome book idea for anyone. Please go for it. If you don't mind, i wrote my first letters to my younger self some time back...If you don't mind, please read them on my page and i'd be glad to see your comments.

      And Thanks for the kind words.

    @seunoyebode - Yes you will... I am glad you are back. You will get back the lost streak and more importantly get better at writing.

    Here is what I do to keep my streak - I have about 10 draft right now... Not complete writings but just introductions to topics that fascinate me and I would like to publish at some point. I improve on drafts throughout the week and get it close to the 200 words when I get more time and I am in the mood to write.. So when it is time to publish, I select one to finalize and then clean it up and publish. It is difficult to start from scratch everyday and publish.

    I think the point of this site is to get better and for me, the streak is a good motivation - so whatever you find can help you stay motivated, keep at it.

    @seunoyebode Glad you are getting right back on the horse. If you are committed then it will certainly become a habit.
