aka excuses.

I have started working a side project that involves me coding . It's starting to get interesting and I want to work on it more. I am not that great at coding (ruby on rails) anymore because I don't work on it often. 

I am relearning a lot of syntax and where everything should go. This makes the process slow and have to rely on my friend for help. Some times it takes a while for my friend to get back. In that time, I try to figure out the errors and try bunch of things. Stack overflow has become my second home on the internet for awhile now. 

When I can't get far in my progress, I switch back to designing the mockup on Figma. 

All this means is that I don't have the energy to write 200 words by the end of the night. Most of the time, I get to about 100 or 150 words and can't finish the topic.

Currently, writing is not a priority and want to get the MVP of the side project out to get feedback. Plus, I get to solve my own pain point. I just want to listen to certain parts of a song in a playlist.

    @itsabhinaya Being a developer myself, I can relate to this. But having said that 200 words isn't that much. If you can start a habit this won't be an issue in the long run.

      @itsabhinaya Why can't you write while lying on the bed?

    @itsabhinaya Programming is writing. Writing prompts for the following days:

    1) What's the problem you're trying to solve?
    2) How is your app going to solve it?
    3) What's so hard about coding as a beginner?
    4) What did you (re-)learn about programming today?
    5) How did you solve today's hardest programming challenge?
    6) How did you come up with this app's idea?

    If you want an MVP to get feedback, a written pitch will do just great. No excuses, there is so much to write about! ;)

      @basilesamel This is true. I am going to keep this in mind.
