No, it’s not okay… it’s perfect! It’s actually the best occasion, since we will be having a longer break until the Winter one just to make them fit better, so it really doesn’t matter at all if anyone starts late, you can still do the 61 days if you wish.
Hmm perhaps the thing that I could recommend the most is, as long as you do a little bit, no matter how small, you’re right on track. I try not to miss any day because I’m way too stubborn and missing once tends to derail me further. But honestly if you do end up missing some days for some reason, don’t worry at all, the important thing is that you’re doing more reading than you were doing prior to the challenge, and that’s reason enough to feel satisfied. Also I’d say don’t feel like you have to read a lot everyday; there are days where I just read one episode in Satori Reader and call it a night, and occasionally some of those are pretty brief. Of course, the more you do, most likely the faster you will improve, but the important thing is trying to avoid burnout. I did burnout a bit last challenge when I pushed it from 61 to 75 days. Reading the right amount for you everyday is much better than not reading for a month, IMO. You can always bump that up if you feel like it.
The way I and for what I’ve seen many others do it, is post a daily update with that day’s work and a little commentary if I want to add anything. Then I go to the home post and update it, as well as this thread’s second post with the summary of everyone and the days we’ve completed so far. I don’t really track reading materials because I just add whatever I feel like reading that day, but I do have a few resources that I resort to, those being a couple of video games and Satori Reader. I also don’t track time spent reading because personally for me I don’t need it, but that’s definitely a personal preference, many others do indeed track it.
For the templates you can quote anyone’s post and then copy it, the one you like the most. I’m not sure if it copies the checkboxes but those are just simple [ ] put together without spaces. To check them you can either click on them after the post is created or edit them with an x in between, like this [ x ] .
I’ll post my template if you’d like to use it, but you can use any, I don’t think anybody would mind .
