Just thought I’d share that I’m in the ZONE right now! Some days/weeks/months I’ve found it so hard to be motivated. The review count stacks up to 5/6/7/800 and any new kanji just seem to take weeks to become familiar.
But now, I’m at level 22 and I’m experiencing a full on FLOW MOMENT with kanji. I seem to be able to remember new kanji in minutes rather than weeks. Readings and jukugo are on the tip of my tongue… and I can’t WAIT for my new lessons and reviews to come available. WK names this section of the 1-60 as ‘DEATH’ while the early section was named ‘PLEASANT’. For me it’s totally the other way around. Pure inertia at the beginning.
Did I reach critical mass? Is there a point at which it all seems to make sense? Is it external factors? Dunno. But it’s fun!
I have similar exp i’m level 18 and while i’m not in the ZONE I enjoy more this lessons than the firsts ones, I think for what I read they labeled hell because at this point the reviews start to pile up a bunch not because of the kanji it self. even if you enjoy kanji they will pile up if you continue your normal count of new kanji every day.
