Day 307 - Time Sure Passes Quickly

I looked at the number at the top of this page as I started this post and thought, “307 stories. That’s a lot and it seems to have gone so fast.”

This is true of almost every endeavor we engage in, particularly long term ones. At the very beginning it seems so slow to get started. Writing a book, the first 20 pages seem to go very slowly but pages 90 to 110 go like a wildfire. Then the last few seem to go slowly as well.

This project got off to a very slow start, or so it seemed. The first 30 or so stories seemed to take forever. Then I seem to have hit a stride and didn’t think about the numbers much. Before I knew it I was up to 40, then 60, then 100, then 200 and now 307. That means about two months to go.

So the question becomes, what do I do next. So far I don’t know. I can keep writing stories or I can transform that momentum of writing every day into a different form, maybe articles, other blog posts, posts on writing, etc. All I know is that I will keep writing.
