The State of Life Nomadic

Here's what's going on with Life Nomadic. The site still isn't ready, but it's getting close. I also said that it was close a month ago, so take that with a grain of salt.

The primary delay is that the site is being coded by hand from scratch. It's not built on wordpress, drupal, or anything else like that. Todd is custom coding it from the ground up. This means that it takes a lot longer to get ready, but will also be way more advanced than any other site like it.

The second delay is that we basically did zero work for two weeks while we went everywhere in Panama. Can't say I regret that at all.

7 more thoughts from 7 more days of NaNoWriMo

On Mike Dariano

This is part two of my thoughts on NaNoWriMo. For part one, click here.

The mighty chart of many words on multiple days during mostly mornings.

A) Writing daily for NaNoWriMo has helped build the habit of daily writing.

This seems simplistic and on the surface it is, if you do a habit daily then you will build that habit. The problem I've had in the past is that it's easy to skip a day after five in a row and then do three only to miss another. Those missed days add up in the process of habit formation. Within NaNoWriMo these missed days have a quantifiable weight to them. I haven't had a zero day but I did only manage 329 words on another, the lowest blue bar. My habit is to write each day, and doing that I've succeed. If my habit was 1600 words each day, then the days I miss that habit are even more pronounced.
