Considering stopping ship its
Ship It Post #
Apr 15, 2022
I’ve almost reached the 6-month mark of writing daily ship its. Many times, it feels like a chore. I don’t know what to write about, I don’t know if what I write about is worth it, I’m just forcing things and it doesn’t add value to my life... are some of the thoughts I have. I often procrastinate on writing them, and end up staying up late past my intended curfew.
There are a few options moving forward.
- Continue writing daily atomic essays, but only publish the ones that I think are good enough quality or have something that I feel others may benefit from.
- Stop the daily schedule, but still write semi-regularly with content I feel confident about.
- Move on to higher quality and longer content, taking a whole week to polish a regular article.
- Stop publishing altogether.
Part of me wants to continue, if only to feed my ego so that I can continue to brag that I publish daily. Maybe taking a break would be good to break compulsive behavior, and rethink what I’m trying to or should aim for with my writing.
