Writing daily on 200 words a day is hard. It teaches you many things.

First of which is showing up. 

Just show up. Done is better than perfect here. 

Keni reminded me of that recently. 

Another thing is forced creation. Showing up requires you to task your brain to create something. 

However you choose to do it. It's hard. 

Fresh article is hard. 

Curation is hard. 

Today is one of those days where I have zero ideas on what to write about. 

During the day, I thought of words. A writing about words. The impact and importance of words. How we use it and it should be used. It's impact on us and others. 

I couldn't put my thoughts together on it. 

I also thought of writing about concentration. How our concentration span seems to be on decline in this age and time. We've trained ourselves to love and crave devices designed for us to get addicted to distractions. 

I couldn't form a complete thought on that also. 

Perhaps I'm distracted. 


So here's a filler for today. No complete article. 

Why on earth did Baz make this thing 200 words. 

That is hard. 

Very hard. 

It is complete now. 

Thank you.

    @seunoyebode - I like the 200. I experienced exactly what you described today. When I woke up this morning, I completed a lengthy article with a title, twist and beautiful conclusion - all in my head. My mind seemed to be so active and creative but I didn't write the ideas down.

    Now after a whole day of running around, when I finally sat down to write, all I had was the title - 'The Immigrant'.
    And nothing else.

    Maybe tomorrow I will rewrite that piece.
    I think we have to create a device that can extract our thoughts and words into another device so we don't lose our wonderful ideas.

      @keni Haha.

      Maybe a phone recorder would be a good companion in storing ideas.

      It's been a while you said "Keep Writing". Please resume.

      Keep Writing.
