Which is pretty cool. I mean, it’s easy to be consistent when you’ve got the “extra” time, but the number of times I’ve posted this many days in a row in the past is very small, and each (both?) of those were for specific projects. Since the pandemic started forcing things closed in Ontario, I’ve been averaging about 4 posts per week. Before that, in 2020, I was averaging 3 posts every two weeks. June has been a huge increase. I’m not sure if it’s because I’ve got more to write about or because more of what I want to write about has a better chance of making it to the keyboard.
Worth noting that in those 25 days, there’s been a total of 26 posts since I actually posted twice on the 18th of June. That was accidental. I’d forgotten about a significant political event happening that day until it started.
Is it a streak? Should I keep track? Yes and, well, have you met me? I track everything. More importantly, am I going to keep posting every day? I think that’s a qualified yes. I will try to post every day, but it’s not going to be the number one writing priority. While I’m usually working a couple of days in advance so there’s a buffer, that next post is the piece of the day’s writing goals that comes after editing, drafting, and publishing prep (if any). I enjoy it, and I’m going to continue, but the fiction is the main thing right now.
I guess that’s a roundabout way of saying that the streak will last as long as it lasts.
Stay safe and be well, everyone.by
