Here’s my goal: write 100 words every day. It can be any topic, it just has to be 100 words or longer. That feels like a decent length. I requires more thought than your typical lazy tweet, but not so much that it makes me feel like i have to clear an entire evening to polish a 500 word essay.
A good piece of advice (I can’t attribute) is to write what you learn. It’s common to feel like you can’t write anything unless you know everything about the topic. But writing helps the writer as much as the reader. Putting the thoughts swirling around your head into words helps stop the swirling and brings clarity. So that’s one source of ideas. Expect missives on Elixir, programming, soccer.
