Why and How I Write

I know that writing is really something that helps me. It helps to organize my thought. It helps me to clear my mind. It helps me to feel accomplished. It helps me to not waste time. It helps me to understand what I am thinking. It helps me to remember what I am thinking. It helps to come up with ideas that are hopefully good enough to share. It helps me to work more diligently. I really don't have any good reason not to write everyday. I seem to be pretty good at making excuses. I have had a few times that I have run out of things to write, but that doesn't happen very often.* And lately I have had tons of things to write and tons of ideas that I would like to remember and tons of good things that I happened to me.

I have set up for my web browser (Chrome) to open up to 3 pages.
One of the pages is This is a site that is basically what it says. You create a list of daily things you want to do and then you track it and it shows up over time. I just recently found it.
Another page is This is a site that is also very simple. It tries to encourage you to write 750 words every day. I have been on the site for a while, but I have a difficult time getting up to 750 words, mostly because it takes a while and I have distractions that get in the way.
The third webpage is (which is the site I am writing this on). I am more likely to write on this page because I know how long it will take me to write and I can focus (fairly) easily for 10 minutes.

*If you ever feel like you would run out of things to write about, I suggest checking out There are daily prompts to write about that are usually pretty good. I have set up to be notified each day and even though I rarely write about the prompt, I use it as a conversation piece.
Tomorrow I will be graduating with my Master’s degree. I am pretty excited.
