This week I’m going to do something a little different. This week, Monday through Thursday, there will be a new post about Habitica, how I use it for keeping up with writing tasks, as well as personal chores, what progress I’ve made, what I’ve found that works for me. I’ll try to keep the posts short (this is a microblog) and not get bogged down in minutiae of how the site works, which is covered well in their FAQ, Overview for New Users, and Habitica Wiki. Just to give you a quick idea where I started from and to tell you the general way the site works, here’s my original post after I joined: The Most Fun You’ll Ever Have With New Year’s Resolutions.
So here’s me, then…and now:
I joined a guild for active science fiction and fantasy writers shortly after joining. Then having gained confidence in my ability to meet my goals within the game (and therefore in life and writing), I formed a party with some of the other writers, and now we’re going off questing, gaining an assortment of rewards. It’s wildly gratifying.
In my next post I’ll tell you how I’m using Habitica. Below is the full series of posts. For my post of first impressions after I joined Habitica in fall 2015, see The Most Fun You’ll Ever Have With New Year’s Resolutions.
