It's the process of how I try to form a new habit — Writing.
It’s really hard to begin, and I even don’t know what to write about for the first day — today. I’ve googled some tips to know what to write. Then, it's the most answer I got. Ideas always pop into our minds out of the blue, so we had better have a pen and paper with ourselves all the time with a view to write down anything at any time.
Actually, if you just want to do "30-Day Writing Challenge", you can just google it. And you'll get tones of ideas about what to write for these 30 days. However, I would like to form a habit, so I would probably train myself to pop up new ideas on my own. Maybe it's difficult, but worthwhile.
The reason why I start this challenge is because of the article with link below.
I'm the person without all these 8 skills, and even don't know these kinds of skills. Maybe you would say what an idiot you are for not knowing these skills. You're right. SO I AM HERE.
I've finished the first skill — Learning to learn. Then, it's the second one.
Here is my start up. I give a certain time, 30~45mins, to write on Medium — the first thing I should do every morning right after I get up, to make writing really a habit. I also try to use hashtag to remind myself of keeping writing and get sense of accomplishment from it.
In addition, the reason why I choose this skill as the second one is that I think the core of writing is similar to illustration, the thing I would love to do as my career. Just like one of the main ideas in Learning To Learn course, a new skill can help promote your another skill in some manner.
Now, I would like to say “It’s indeed hard to get started, but everything will become easier.”
It’s my real feeling. After 30mins writing, I feel that I have tons of things to keep writing and sharing.
It’s the end of today’s writing challenge. It's not my first post on Medium, but hope it could become the first step of my writing life.
