Atomic Essays are daily, screenshot-sized writings posted online to develop a writing habit. In May, I participated in Ship30for30‘s challenge to write 30 Atomic essays.
Atomic essays use James Clear’s 4 rules for developing habits (1. Make it obvious, 2. Make it attractive, 3. Make it easy, 4. Make it satisfying). Another critical part of developing habits is identity transformation. Transitioning from “I want to be an online writer” to “I am an online writer”. I’ve enjoyed participating, and engaging with others in this endeavor.
Ship30for30 is a fantastic program. If you are interested in developing a daily writing habit, I would highly encourage you to participate.
