My reflections after two weeks on 200wad
After doing the 200 words a day challenge for two weeks, I'm starting to feel kind of drained. It's like I'm out of ideas, inspiration and motivation. The only thing that has been motivating me to continue writing everyday is the streak.
I also have to admit I've cheated a little. I published an unfinished draft yesterday and the day before that (apparently there isn't a name in english to name the day before yesterday, there is one in spanish) instead of writing (I'm out of drafts and thus out of excuses now, but it still feels wrong).
I think I've fallen into the media trap. When I started this was just a fun thing I was doing, now I'm starting to thing about my 200wad as articles that have to go into too many revisions and look perfect, and that's exactly what I was trying to escape from by using this platform.
So, for the next days, I'm gonna try a new thing. I'm not gonna delete anything I write here. If a word is typed, I cannot edit nor remove that word anymore (except for typos). Hopefully this way I'll stop censoring myself and expecting everything to look perfect before I hit publish.
