Its day 27. 

In the beginning the focus was -

The streak! Don't break the streak.

So I wrote....  though I expected few to read.
I was stressing about what time of the day it was.

How many hours left to come up with a topic?Must write something!

The focus was writing. Anything.  

Then around the 7th day ... my focus changed...

I should write better.
Pick good topics. 
Make it interesting.
Think of my audience.

The Result?

Increased anxiety. 
But much better content. And excitement.  

I realize that keeping the streak is the easy part. 
Keeping the streak while having an interesting subject, title and content was where this adventure got serious. 

I have started spending little bit too much time here, looking for ways to improve my writing. I invest more time reading and commenting on posts of others. I noticed that I mirror my topics and styles with the writers I liked. 

Is that how growth happens? Or am I building an addiction?

What is the appropriate amount of time for this while the rest of the To-Do list stares at you waiting for a turn?

    @keni Addiction, I don't know. Maybe it's just building a habit :)
    Wait, no, it's 'cultivating' a habit: You can plant seeds and let them grow wild and unkempt, or you can cultivate them with care and see your plants flourish.
    Keep it up!

      @gabrielgreco - I like the sound of cultivate. I need to work on the cultivation :)
      Thank you.
