#NaNoWriMo LOG: DAY 24 (A 1st Timer’s Journey)
Lots of questions in the past 2-3 days about my 30 and 31-day challenges from new friends I've met through NaNoWriMo, and through folks I know from the Web/iOS/Dev/Design community.
I LOVE THE QUESTIONS!
WHEN DID YOU START DOING 30-DAY CHALLENGES?
I started getting consistent with them in December 2014, with 31people31days (A writing exercise in gratitude. No editing, posted whatever I had done within 30 minutes of early morning writing.) I had done a variety of trial-runs leading up to that, experimenting in early 2013-2014 with things like 5-day challenges and 10-day challenges, inspired by Dr. B.J. Fogg's tinyhabits.com - HUGELY USEFUL. My first full 30-day challenge was 30days of #TIL in June of 2014.
These challenges planted seeds for me and grew into a hunger to take on more, and to make the challenges a little more uncomfortable every time. NaNoWriMo had been an out-of-reach goal for me since 2011. The smaller challenges were not 100% about NaNo, but committing to and completing a NaNoWriMo challenge represents a HUGE milestone of progress for me as a writer, and as a person who is working hard to grow and improve my life every single day.
So then. Instead of answering more of the awesome questions (thank you, keep 'em coming, I will answer them all either directly or through future posts!)
I will ask YOU a question:
WANT TO JOIN ME FOR A 31-DAY CHALLENGE IN DECEMBER?
