Updating the table

Remember how I said I decided it would be really tedious to post about what I've written every single day of my March Madness challenge, and instead am keeping the totals in a little table on my lefthand sidebar so we can all track my progress? It is actually really satisfying to update said table every time I write a letter or a postcard. Weird. But I'm going to admit that I'm pretty proud of myself, after such a dry spell, for writing 18 pieces of mail since Monday.


  1. It is not weird at all. There is always something satisfying about making progress on a project you have assigned yourself. I feel the same way myself :) GOOD for you On the 18 pieces of mail.

  2. Updating things like that IS pretty satisfying, it helps you realize you're on your way to achieving a goal. :) I really think I should do something similar, although not 20 a week! I was thinking this morning that maybe you'd want to write a weekly check-in of how you've been doing rather than a post for everything you've sent out, so that we can cheer you on better? Then you can post 'normally' the rest of the week.

  3. Hmmm... A weekly check-in... I'll have to think about that. I'm not sure that wouldn't be tedious, either, and then I'd have to go back and count for the week... but it could be kind of fun. Yep, I'll think about it.
