This is the beginning of my challenge to publish 30 atomic essays in 30 days. Thanks to Dickie Bush, I’ve decided to pay 50 USD to a stranger to commit myself to do what I haven’t been able to do on my own. Thanks to the Internet.
I wrote daily for one year for a total of half a million words. Why? What did I write about? What have I learned in the process? I thought I should make a reflection on this important challenge. I’ve learned something. Mostly about myself. And I’ve also committed to leverage on the compound effect of writing daily. But if I don’t extract the essence of this herculean effort, this thing which made me suffering and proud, which made me stronger and more aware, then why would I have done it?
That’s the perfect place for 30-by-30. Writing, every day, for thirty days about what I have learned by writing for 365 days. Very meta, recursive, and fractal. But also very abstract and intangible until I won’t make sense about that experience.
