Sunday Coffee ☕️ #0035

February 14, 2021

Good morning!

I've been writing consistently since the past 37 weeks of my life.

It's not my longest streak with writing (I wrote for tech blogs almost everyday for 4 years and that paid for college), but it is the longest streak of writing on my own blog and writing outside the bounds of a job or work project.

Every week, I get new emails or Twitter DMs asking about how I got started with writing, and how they could do the same. Most people ask the same questions, but they also ask the wrong questions.

Here are some of those wrong questions:

  • What did you use to create your blog?
  • Should I use Medium or Substack, or should I code my own blog?
  • Should I start a newsletter?

Instead, the only question that matters is - Did you write?

And so I wrote a post about how anyone can get started with cultivating a writing practice by focusing their energy on the right things.
