Today marks the 200th days of non-stop writing here on 200wordsaday. It is not a comfortable journey, but I start getting used to it to make sure there are some ideas to write every morning. There are still times that even though I have ideas but can't write out anything, instead of letting myself stuck there, I will just come out with something new to write.

For this particular day, I would like to share how I come out with all these writing ideas. The core idea of my writing engine is I capture my writing ideas to my todoist / trello since I know I need to write daily, as long as something worth to write, I will note down the ideas. It might be just a few words or a hyperlink, as long as I feel inspired or I feel I have some opinion on the topic, I will capture it and review it every morning before I start writing.

My ideas coming from these

  • Daily Life - I talk about my family and children sometimes.
  • Daily working -  freelancer's life got lots of things to tell.
  • Product journey - I have lots of things to tell while I am building my product.
  • Personal Performance - While I try to tweak my performance, I note down things that work and not working.
  • Routine post idea - I have a bi-weekly post on my dev journal and monthly post on my goal tracking.
  • Tweets - I read a lot from Twitter and give me quite a few ideas sometime.
  • 200wad posts - I get inspired sometimes while reading other post or reply other's 200wad post
  • Checking through my own old 200wad posts also sometime bring some new ideas

I hope these ideas help if you just start to write on 200wad or those already join #TeamStreak but still struggle with what to write.

Toward the next milestone 300th post.

    @knight congratulations. An awesome achievement that requires great commitment.

    It was interesting to read this after @danielmiller post: https://200wordsaday.com/words/this-post-is-boring-209655d104af2760f2

    I hope it helps to know that we all struggle, but it’s worthwhile. You find yourself thinking about it more often and your content gets better the more you do it. Sometimes even without having to plan.

    To the next 100 ?
