i was lucky enough to get in on writingstreak.io/ early, and i'm finally pushing myself to use it. today is the second day.

this is terrifying for me – i burned out of my friends' write club *hard* – but i'm hoping that writing in five-minute, 100-word bursts, with no real chance for revision, will at least work my atrophied writing muscle and encourage more abandon and less anxiety.

deep breaths.

@nicknicknicknick ooh, interesting. I have done 750words on and off for years, but I am curious about the additional flexibility here.

@nicknicknicknick yup! for context: 750words.com/

I didn't really edit at all, and most times I treated my backspace key as non existent.

@jonbro
phwoar... that does give me a bit of an anxiety flare-up, volume-wise. but then, writingstreak also has a "typewriter mode" where you can't hit backspace at all...

@nicknicknicknick sorry about that :( it was too much for me too - and the writing didn't go anywhere. I seem to recall that the book it was based on suggested burning the 3 pages after you wrote them - so more of a meditation than a production if that makes sense.

@nicknicknicknick anyways! I am here rooting for you! you got this :)

@jonbro
thanks much. that sounds about right though... i'm not looking for good, i'm looking for the muscle memory, as it were.
