No, just NO!

You know, it is 11.38PM when I start writing up this post. I’m hesitant to call it a day and skip writing for this one day. It would be the easy solution. I just had a fun social evening with some colleagues, complaining about work, sharing awkward pictures of long-forgotten times, and playing online group games. Fun stuff. Sure, I could easily have skipped writing for a day.

But I just won’t.

I’m the kind of person that gets obsessed with ‘the grind’. I love the writing. It doesn’t even matter about what. I can ramble on and on and on. No problem. So, when the opportunity presents itself to break my, whatever, 80 day daily post streak, the answers is thanks, and no!

If I skip once, I will skip twice, and sooner or later I will quit this practice altogether. No, I’d rather write and ramble for a couple of minutes and save my precious daily writing streak. I’ll save the exception for another day.

Five minutes of rambling and you sort of have a post. It doesn’t have to be hard. It also doesn’t have to be quality. Sometimes you can just churn out words, other times it’s more about story.

It’s now 12:45PM and I think this is long enough for today.

Post done. Goodnight!
