Write for Ten

Ian Li

What should I name this project of writing for ten minutes each day? My initial thought was Just Take Ten, which was inspired by a book about ten-minute writing exercises that I gave my sister. Unfortunately, justtaketen.com is taken.

Another idea is to use the Tagalog word for ten: sampo. Perhaps the sampo project? Interestingly, sampo also means some magical object in Finnish.

The past couple of days, I’ve been considering “The Log Ten Project”. It’s a nice word play. Log is synonymous with journaling and daily writing. Ten refers to the 10-minute constraint of the project. log10 or log base 10 is known as the common logarithm in mathematics. The domain name logten.org is available.

How about Ten-A-Day? I bet tenaday.com is available. However, I think the name implies that you must only write one 10-minute log per day. The overall goal of the site is to encourage fearless writing. Just write for 10 minutes without concern.

Hmmm…perhaps I should consider justtaketen.org
