A spaced repetition writing system is motivating because it is designed to help you work more on ideas that are really interesting to you incrementally—just a few prompts a day, which you return to in different intervals.

The system allows you to Combine curiosity with a note-writing system and practice and Use curiosity to guide your thinking thus Establish a workflow that is motivating.
