8 Essays in 8 Days

What I wrote last week

Hey peeps,

I love writing, but as you may have noticed, it’s hard to establish a consistent practice.

That’s why I joined the most recent cohort of #Ship30for30, an online writing program where participants publish 30 “atomic essays” (250 words) in 30 days.

My cohort kicked off last week, and I’m 8/8 so far. It’s been a great challenge: I’ve enjoyed writing every day, although it’s sometimes hard to “ship” something that I know isn’t finished. Not every piece will be great, but quantity begets quality. Some ideas will turn into larger pieces or start interesting conversations.

I’m looking forward to finding patterns in my ideas and developing them further. So far, a theme I’m seeing is how we can rethink the relationships between companies and their customers.

If you want to follow along, you can see a thread of my essays so far.


As always, feel free to reply with feedback, questions, or just want to say hi.
