One Month of a Streak Habit

By Chris McGinty

Here it is January 31st, and at least as of now I haven’t broke the streak habit, provided of course that I do get a work of fiction written by the end of the day. I did something similar a few years ago throughout the month of April. I posted a blog post each day, and then I gave up after a month. I almost just intentionally broke my streak habit by not posting on April 30th, but I went ahead and did it anyway. Believe me, I’m really considering just going ahead and stopping this like, “Oh well, I did it all for January.” I really haven’t decided yet.

I just know that I’m not going to have a whole lot of time to do any quality writing and so that’s the thing that kind of worries me. I still haven’t been able to get a few days in advance scheduled, and that would be the thing that would really help me. If I had actually had that done by the end of January, I think that I would have just been like, “Yeah, I’ll just keep going.”

So if I stop this anytime in the next couple of days that’s why. The problem is that in some ways it’s not just about having blog posts scheduled right now. The problem is like I said I just may not have a whole lot of time to do quality writing, which I just don’t like the idea of.

I think particularly tonight because it’s like I do actually have a few really good ideas, but I just don’t really have the time to write them tonight. The answer to this problem is to get this one done, and then start working on one of the good ideas. But then I think, “You also need to actually go work for a while and make some money.”


I’ll just have to see where I am tomorrow as to whether or not I continue doing this.
