I like to write. I’ve always wanted to be a journal-er. But I’m such a perfectionist, I could never figure out quite how to start. I even bought cute journals, hoping it’d entice me. Kinda, but not really.
One day a couple of months ago, I read somewhere that I don’t HAVE to write the equivalent of War and Peace for each journal entry. What if each entry was only as long as a tweet?
140 characters? Now THAT I can do.
On average, I write 2 or 3 tweets-worth, and then add a short list of things I’m grateful for. I usually do it before bed, by the light of my favorite book light. It’s a great snapshot of what’s going on on my life, and a positive way to end my day.
