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.

sharing more, not because it's *good*, but because i want to keep myself honest.

writing is a kind of muscle memory and i still need to do my stretches.

continuing, intermittently.
discovering that i'm never going to *have* time to write. i'll just have to forcibly carve it out of the still-breathing day.

note that this is not *good*, but it is *written*, and that is important.

this excerpt being inspired directly by some nationalist doc about canada in WWI i just finished watching, anyway.

you can follow my numbers here: writingstreak.io/@nicknicknick

the iframe of the latter still doesn't embed properly in my own website, what even gives.


more writing during a five-minute work break. i think for the next little while i'm going to just hit the "random wiki" button on wikipedia and take the result as a prompt.

today: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathanie

not great, not terrible. just continuing.
