One word per day

Write one word each day, and you'll get 365 words in a year.

Make it a hundred words and you'll get 36,500 words in a year. (That's around half the words in the average non-fiction book.)

What about 1,000 words every day? That's 365,000 words.

Will your writing be worth reading? This is a harder question, but you'll surely be able to communicate your thoughts better.

Your readers are out there waiting for you—they just don't know it yet.

In 600 days of practice, I share how and why I write and sketch daily, and discuss the concepts of deliberate practice and atomic habits.

In Why should you write?, I talk about the benefits of writing "in public" every week.

In Are you writing enough?, I comment how generating more ideas makes you more original.

In my Writing habits podcast episode, I share the routines that help me write consistently and the software tools and gadgets that I use on a daily basis to journal, write essays, posts, and episodes, and review and edit my writing.
