Challenge Update: Winning? Losing?

I’ve been writing on Medium for two weeks straight now. Here’s a midway synopsis.

In the beginning

Initially, this challenge felt exactly how it sounded… like a challenge! The first week was all about breaking tension; breaking my mental and emotional strains. At times, I didn’t “feel like it.” I had to push through.

The ball’s rolling

After a few strenuous days, everything seemed to ease up. I got into a groove and started to see some encouraging results. I love numbers, so allow me to break out some stats:

It’s working

Believe it or not, I am getting better as a writer, too (or feels like it). It’s no question I’ve become more productive. In the literal sense, I am producing more than I was before which is always beneficial. Writing is like any other skill, the more you practice, the better.

Can’t forget

Another really great part about this challenge is the boost in interaction. I enjoy connecting with other perspectives and trading information with fellow members. It’s another opportunity. I love the exchange of ideas.

Carry on

The fact I haven’t quit is nothing to boast about, but I’m glad I haven’t quit. Any long-term process or stretched out challenge will test your perseverance.
