Thank you for writing this with honesty and integrity, Mateja. Your experience with “stunt writing,” which is how I came to view the “30 Day Challenge,” produced similar results. Maybe the only place we should push daily writing is into a journal. That’s where my daily writing goes. And that kind of writing is not something I want people to read necessarily, but the practice helps me get better at finding what I really care about, become more fluent and less afraid of the blank page. I have a friend who says this about people publishing journal-y writing: That kind of writing is like masturbation. No one needs to see it and the only person who gets any pleasure from it is you.
