139 Days of Writing About Books. Here’s What I’ve Learned.

For the past 139 days, I’ve written and published my thoughts on books. When I first started this journey, these questions kept bouncing around in my mind:

  1. What if I run out of ideas?
  2. How will I sustain a daily writing habit?
  3. What if nobody cares?

Here’s what I’ve learned:

  1. Books are an endless source of ideas. That’s why we read them!
  2. Keeping up a writing habit was hard for about two weeks, but then it became a foundational part of my day. Now, it’s something I look forward to as a way to clarify my thoughts.
  3. People do care about books! Since starting my blog, my newsletter has gained over 3,000 subscribers. It’s incredible that in the flood of digital information, I’m finding my people, and we’re having fascinating conversations about books.

If you’ve been considering building a daily reading or writing habit but are hesitant to commit, I say, “go for it!” After a few weeks of discomfort, you’ll settle into your habit and be grateful it’s there. I read and write every day, and I would be lost without it.

Until tomorrow, read slowly – take notes – apply the ideas.
