My 500 Words


“Here’s what I know about writing: It happens in small bites. Step by step. One little chunk at a time.” – Jeff Goins

Yep, this is exactly what is looks like…

I will write at least 500 words per day, for 31 days.

When I stumbled upon this post from my brother, Sergio, I thought it was a recent challenge. But I was wrong. This has been going on for a while now.

The idea originated from the brilliant mind of Jeff Goins — an amazing writer, and a great guy. I’ve followed Jeff for a few years now, but somehow I missed on this idea.

I’m glad Sergio shared about it.

The idea behind it is to help cement the daily writing habit. If you’ve tried to write daily, you know how hard, and challenging it is. I know I have struggled with it in the past. That’s what motivated me to take on the challenge.

I will post my writings here, daily.

To make the best out of it, I’ll write content to use on future episodes of my podcast. As non-native English speaker, I have a hard time recording the podcast. The solution I came up with was to write a simple script — writing as I speak. For this reason, the content isn’t exactly “publishing” material. But it serves me well. That’s all that matters.

This is a freewriting exercise, so I may deviate from my main topic of choice (personal development). I’ll do my best to come up with content that I can use, but I won’t let it be an excuse to avoid writing.
