In April I will write one poem each day for a month. I’m creating this thread to brainstorm possible ways of committing to this goal. Ideally, I would have some autodata integration helping me out with this, and the conditions of autodata generation would be strict enough that weaseling out of it by fudging data would be as much work as just writing the damn poem. There are a few ways I can think of to mind writing a poem each day:
- Use existing URLminder or Draft integration to mind word count or changes (not preferred, as poems range in length from 20 words to 1000+ words)
- Manually enter data each time I write (not preferred, defeats the point of autodata)
- Count the number of new documents in google drive via some kind of fancy script or IFTTT
The best possible method, however, to ensure that I actually write a poem and can’t fudge data by creating a new document with no text in it, would be to only count a new document IF it has at least 5 lines of text AND at least two lines of text with more than 5 words on them.
I vaguely remember hearing about a webapp which purported to be “like IFTTT, but moreso” by offering logic-as-a-service, conditionals, and minimal scripting capability, but can’t for the life of me remember what it is.
Any thoughts on possibilities for autodata integrations, script-hosting services for using webhooks, etc. would be highly appreciated
