200 Crappy Words

As a short exercise to help me fight procrastination, taking inspiration from the below excerpt from Mark Manson’s brilliant book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck” (which I highly recommend), I’m going to attempt to write and share a daily blog about a given subject matter in Azure in 200 crappy words! Word economy is going to be key. Wish me luck.

“I recently heard a story about a novelist who had written over 70 novels. Someone asked him how he was able to write so consistently and remain inspired and motivated every day, as writers are notorious for procrastination and for fighting through bouts of “writer’s block”. The novelist said, “200 crappy words per day, that’s it.” The idea is that if he forced himself to write 200 crappy words, more often than not, the act of writing would inspire him and before he knew it he’d have thousands down on the page.”

Authors Note: It took me 56 minutes to write this intro, during which time I swapped between Mac and Windows laptop, went from my standing to sitting desk and switched from Word to OneNote

Word Count: 192
