I Have an Article At 99U on My Extended Writing Streak

When I was asked to write an article for 99U, I decided to get a little meta, and write about how I’ve been able to hack my writing streak to ensure that I write every day, even with a fulltime job and family. That article is now online:

How I Kept a 373-Day Productivity Streak Unbroken

At the time I wrote the article, my streak was at 373 days. It’s now 20 days since I wrote the article and my streak continues at 393 days.

In the article, I offer some tips that have worked for me for maintaining the streak, even with a busy and varied schedule. Head on over to 99U to check out the article, if you are so inclined.

  1. Congrats, and thanks for the interesting article. I guess a similar approach would work for many things that one might want to do on a long-term and regular basis, like exercising or running.

    BTW, do you keep your writing in Evernote? Do you use Evernote to keep track of how many pieces of writing you’ve sold? Do you just add a “sold” tag to the file?
