Why I Write – 2016 Writing Challenge

Update 2/15/2017: If you can notice below, I didn’t get to complete this “challenge”. It was pretty fucking hard to accomplish, but I see 14 days of straight posting as a great win.

I guess that’s a lesson I want you to take away from this: enjoy the small wins – even when they’re because you didn’t get the “big win” you aimed for.

I plan to come back to this soon. Stay tuned!

Hey there!

Although there’s a lot of reasons why I started writing, one of them is that I want to be a better writer. That’s why it’s my personal goal to write everyday for the next 30 days. I started this on May 21, 2016, and hope to end with 30 articles, published on this blog, by June 21, 2016.

I thought that the best way to track my progress in terms of writing is the speed in which I could create these articles. It’s also a goal of mine to write better, and faster.

If you have any questions for me personally, you can fill out the contact form at the end of the page. I’ll do my best to answer them and help you out in the best of my ability.


Daily Progress Report

For posts that don’t have an exact time, I wasn’t able to track it or it was an old write-up that I wrote a long time ago and just published on that date.

For posts that do have an exact time, I use Hours to track the time I spend writing. This does not include time spent on making the images, publishing on WordPress, sharing on social media, etc.
