I’m ready to write a bunch of crappy stuff.

I deleted my Instagram account a while back. Not deleted the app off my phone, like deep dive, do it from a web browser, face the blue “Are you super duper sure you wanna do this?” button.

It was my only regular writing outlet. I had established a good rhythm: three posts a week–one about a book, one a quote, one a miniblog–posted through a third-party service so I could set it and forget it, spending less time on the app altogether.

But I took a social media break and heard that still, small voice.

Walk away.

I didn’t really want to, but I did.

Today, I read a random post on a random personal finance blog about some random personal finance blogger. She keeps her New Year’s resolutions because she’s very specific and takes on one at a time, one of which was writing 100,000 words during that year.

I like the freedom in that.

I don’t know what I want to write, and that makes for a crappy blog. Or book. Or anything. But it makes for a lot of opportunity to try things.

2021 is a long ways away. Plus pandemic days are like dog years, mathematically speaking. But 100,000 words in 2021 sounds like a doable goal. Flexible but with a hard deadline.

I’ll probably be back before then, but if not, it’s nice to at least shake the dust off here.

{I guess we can keep a total for 2020 starting now?
234 words for this article
+ 809 for this article I wrote for Fathom Magazine
+ 909 for an article waiting to be published elsewhere in the new year,
bringing our total-ish for the year to 1,952}
