#nerdlution: I’m In
I like being part of an online community of educators and writers and readers and super creative people. Currently I’m in awe by #nerdlution.
|The official #nerdlution button!|
It started on a whim. A couple of friends talking about the importance of accountability and wanting to establish some new habits.
And I was swept away by the phenomenon.
I committed to a word count goal.
I attempted to be realistic.
If I would have taken time to think it through I wouldn’t have committed.
Sometimes I think this writing adventure is simply a pipe dream.
Then I do something concrete.
Like announce a word count goal as my #nerdlution contribution.
Suddenly I’m in.
My Twitter feed is ecstatic.
And I could say:
My #nerdlution friends would understand. I wouldn’t understand, though. I can’t walk away from the commitment I made. This is what #nerdlution is all about. Choosing to do something that you know will make you happy, then having a group to hold you accountable and celebrate when you do the thing you thought was too hard.
So I’m sticking with my #nerdlution buddies.
After all, the reason they are my friends is because they’ve got moxie.
And they remind me that I do too.
I will write for a 50 day streak.
550 words a day.
