Ever searching for the best note taking application on Ubuntu I stumbled upon Standard Notes today and then the #100Days writing challenge they suggest. I thought it was a great idea and something that would kickstart me back into writing, recording my thoughts and making them more public. So starting today I’m committing to doing it for the next 100 days. With 95 days left in 2019 this seems like the perfect time to start, wrap up my thoughts for the year and experiment with a new habit to consider keeping in 2020.
For the first day of the challenge the easiest and most useful first post is to document my intentions and maybe list some intended outcomes.
Public record: I intend to force myself into committing my thoughts to the “paper” aka the internet. I have a blog but with I often over analyze and try to make sure the posts are solid before posting. On Twitter the medium and most of my thoughts don’t fit well into 140 characters so here I can be flexible with that. I have a big backlog of ideas for topics to talk and this challenge should empty them.
Improve communication: Writing my thoughts out and getting feedback from you all will help improve my writing ability.
Improve thoughts: I hope to self-evaluate and improve my thinking process as well as stretch myself to hone some of my skills, document things I know and write down questions I want to know the answer to.
Want to follow along? This will be terrifying for me and poor entertainment for you. Maybe you can join the challenge with me.
