# First posting
The general idea of having a writing station, is to clear your mind and the distractions and write. To not get caught up in the alerts, notifications, pings, badges, and likes. But to actually get your thoughts from your head put them out onto paper, a journal, or something. Journaling is like exercise, at least for me. It’s hard to get started. It’s hard to keep doing it. Once I’ve done it for a considerable amount of time, I am feel measurably better in a lot of ways. So you’d think it would be easy to keep up right? Well, like a lot of people, I struggle to do things that take more effort than vegging, which is a number greater than zero.
I want to be better at writing. And the only way to accomplish that is to actually write more. I have often downplayed my ability to write, not novels, but emails, docs, what would be described as simple communications. Not like a grand novel or anything. So I started working on Post It. I need some way to track, game, and motivate myself to keep posting. Because it’s easy to skip a day. Or to only write a couple hundred characters. But less so if it means breaking my streak
