Why I am starting 30 articles in 30 days challenge

Yes, it’s daunting. Yes, I am scared..

I have been thinking to get consistent with my writing for a while now. But no matter how much I pace myself, there are a few days when I am able to write north of ten thousand words and then there are days when writing 500 words becomes a challenge.

On most days I would spend my time browsing the internet and brainstorming the ideas for my next blog; on most days, I fail to come up with any idea that I consider worth exploring; and on most days, I fail to write.

Yesterday was a similar day. I spent a couple of hours going through the internet reading about new Apple products, reading full-day commentary on one of the matches of the ICC Women Cricket World Cup, and going through my Medium newsfeed. I am not sure about the exact time, but somewhere in those two hours, I realized I needed to challenge myself for doing better, for doing more than what I had been doing.

Enter the 30 articles, 30 days challenge.

I had read about this challenge a few weeks back where writers would write 30 articles in 30 days. In fact, I realized that if you’re looking for a way to jumpstart your writing career, or just challenge yourself in a new way, then writing 30 articles in 30 days is an awesome idea.

The challenge definitely comes with a sense of fear (the imposter syndrome) that I might not be able to live up to the expectations. But what is life without a little bit of fear?

I have set the deadline for writing and publishing one article every day for the next 30 days. I will be writing on a variety of topics (including but not limited to) — business, personal finance, books, experiences, and more.

I aim to achieve the following:

I will be writing more, editing more, and researching more. This is something that I can use throughout my career — not just for writing articles but also for memos, white papers, proposals, etc.

So, there you have it — my reasoning behind taking up the 30 articles in 30 days writing challenge! Are you ready to take up the challenge with me? Let me know in the comments below! :)
