About yesterday’s writing live stream

Thanks to everyone who watched me start writing my article yesterday for MapQuest about my recent visit to Boston. Overall, I found the experience positive. As for viewers, well, you were promised a video live stream of a guy writing an article and real-time access to the Google document. So hopefully your expectations were low but exceeded.

A few thoughts:

  • At first, having an audience influenced my writing, making me feel like I needed to have a readable narrative upfront. As time passed, peer pressure became less of an issue.
  • I usually take more breaks than I did today. And spend more time on social media, checking RSS feeds, etc. So thanks for keeping me on track.
  • I felt exhausted afterwards, but that might have been because I skipped my morning snack so as to spare viewers the sight of me eating oatmeal.
  • I’m probably going to do it again (call it Zach Write Live, or something).

Did you watch? If so, please let me know your thoughts in the comments. Thanks!

    I love this idea, Zach. Sorry I missed it but will definitely tune in for the next one.
