The Lindy Effect of Not Writing

As I started to write a little less last year due to a job change and a significantly different life routine due to the pandemic and kids it, it became increasingly easier to write even less.

The longer I went without writing, the easier it was to just not. Kind of like the Lindy Effect i.e. the life of something is proportional to how long it’s already lived, in this case the “life” of not writing.

I’m glad I just hit reset.

I’m now “been writing on since 2004” (jeez, that’s 18 years); and not “stopped writing regularly for 6 months”.
