What do people think of 200 Words a Day?
I was one of the first people to join #200wad & I loved it. Had to stop writing due to festivals but will come back again. I only have ~10 posts but still I feel like it has made me a better writer already. Basile is building it in public & loved the way it has shapen up. Keep going Baz ✍️
Are you a bad writer?
You aren't until you prove it to this community. If you write 200 words a day for one year and your writing skill doesn't improve — maybe you are not a very good writer. But until then — you can't say that you are bad or good at it.
And if you really want it, I'm sure this platform could help you become a better writer — just be consistent and keep writing and learning!
Practice. Every. Day.
I'd been using it for 1 month now and had never written so much within such a short period. 200 words per day is a surprisingly low barrier. I often start thinking I won't make it to 200 words but before I know it, it's past 300 words already. It's like the motivation hack where you do 1 rep in your workout. Streaks were super helpful in nudging me to keep at it. Love the minimalist, distraction-free interface for writing. Best part is getting inspiration for writing from others in the community! We borrow ideas, formats, and questions that lead us to writing our own piece. The community is probably the most exciting and promising part of the product.
I have been writing on this platform since it was born and from experience of using it, you have nothing to lose other than taking a short time a day to brainstorm of what to write and to write 200 words.
Like most people I procrastinate. This App has helped me find the discipline to write each day. The gamification feature that shows how many days your "streak" is alive has given me the extra "nudge" some days when I didn't feel like doing shit. I highly recommend it.
The idea is kinda cool, but it is so littered with MLM spam. Someone is trying to sell Pure Romance on this site... it ruins it when I have to look closely to find a community post. Where is the content moderation???
