Life gets in the way sometimes, so I don’t get to write as often as I’d like. I’m also sure I’m not the only one who struggles with the quest for that elusive writing time, so I thought I’d share this information here, because this app had been helping me.
The thing is, you don’t even have to find the time to write; if you have Day One on your smart phone, the time is right now. It’s as easy as Twitter except it’s private. You can share your thoughts if you want, but the app really is made for journaling; its main purpose is to aid the individual who likes to capture unfiltered moments and memories through writing. It’s not for your friends or followers, just you. It can even send you friendly reminders if you prefer, a gentle nudge of encouragement — which really helped me and I usually don’t allow push notifications on apps I download. In the end, although I haven’t written long notable essays on it, I enjoy the fact that I’ve written at least a line almost every day since I got this app.
I found it very motivating and sometimes, that’s all a person needs to get to a simple goal. A simple win.
