For now, I wish to remain anonymous. How anonymous Listed is by default I actually have no idea, but so it goes. For the moment, I will remain 7266. I don't mean to be dramatic, I'm just privacy-conscious.
I have in the past participated in a similar writing challenge to this, writing daily over a long-ish period of time. There is something therapeutic about it, and I'm excited that Listed offers such a challenge to encourage people to write. I think this is a good thing.
I journal regularly, on paper, and I think there is a lot of value in the analog. But I think that a public journal like this also has its own value. There is simply a different mindset that comes with writing for yourself, privately, vs writing something that you know will be out in the world, even if few people will see it. It's a different kind of feeling. There is something valuable in the possibility of being seen.
My posts will often be short. But I hope to write regularly as a practice. It's something I've missed, and wanted to return to for a long time. This is a good venue for it.
To any reader - I wish you a good day.
