Goofy Thoughts While Reading About Habits

I'm reading _Superhuman by Habit_, which has a ton of problems, but the problems are so interesting that I'll probably wind up finishing the book, which almost certainly makes it a good book. Altho I doubt I would recommend it; a more detailed review will follow.

The second half of the book is a list of habits Tynan (single name author) has developed for himself: why, how, pros and cons, etc. When reading about his daily writing habit, I thought of B.'s 750 words a day habit, which I have been skeptical of. I'm pretty skeptical of all journaling habits, and have been since I first had to engage in journaling in high school. Anyway, I suddenly realized that I had been thinking of 750 words a day as quite a lot to be writing. Then it occurred to me, hey, I wonder how many words I churn out on a typical blogging day.

And I just want to say to my regular readers, I am so, so, so sorry. Also, I'm sort of in awe that anyone keeps up at all. That is a lot of words. OTOH, hey, my husband is Real Glad he doesn't have to listen to them. He can pace himself and decide which ones to read.

ETA: I got the book through Kindle Unlimited. Yay, Kindle Unlimited!
