So I've started aggregating my data, and writing about my dating app experiences this year. My "year study" was to download all the mainstream (& not so mainstream) 😉 apps. Compare and contrast, write about features, write about my experiences, and share with the world a REAL LIFE review of these applications. I go on dates with NO expectations because I am single, and I honestly love dating and meeting new people. Is it weird that I don't feel open or safe to share my thoughts yet though? Any writers have recommendations on how to stay anonymous or use a pen name? I've started this IG acct to just start curating some content as I would most likely have IG versions of my articles that link to my blog. Thoughts? #writersblock#writing#creativewriting#datingapps#datingin2018#dating#love#me#safe#scared#writinghelp#english#blogs#blogging#writingistherapy amazing art by @melodieperrault buy her art. Duh.
Writers block and procrastination in the face of that assessment started today, due tomorrow are no more. I've discovered the answer.
So this assessment required me to sit in on a court case and write 1800 words on observations and insights. I attended, wrote for points then left. I went to a cafe with a sunny outdoor spot, ordered the largest mocha then sat down with my notebook. Halfway done, beautifully written and it wasn't even a strain. It was relaxing, interesting and made me feel smart af!
I should do this more often!
I’ve been reading two books that are polar opposites.
The first one I picked up was Crushing it by Gary Vaynerchuk. The demands it describes are high. If I were 30 years younger, I might be able to maintain that pace for a while, but not forever.
Then I started reading the Essentialist. The idea behind that book is that if you do less you’ll accomplish more and do it better.
You can compare your impact to water. If you channel it through a sprinkler, you get a hundred small streams. Put water through a pressure washer and you can blast stains off walls - fast.
What kind of impact would you like to have?
