After reaching 1040+ days I was hit with severe sepsis and well, my word count went out of the window once I hit the ICU. To say I was a little devastated would be an understatement. I understand that it is a silly thing to be sad about when I could have lost my living streak instead but I will admit to being sad. I gave myself the last few days of June to mope and started again.

From 1040+ to 10, here I go again. At least I have places to go and badges to earn again.

750Words.com saved my sanity. This morning I passed 2 million words. I’ve completed 750 words for 1374 days in the past six years. Those first few years were rocky attempts to get some routine. My longest “run” was 267 days until I got stuck at an airport in Crete with no wireless. But by then the habit was entrenched.

The first 750 words each day clear my head of all the toxic waste which gathers there. I wake up each morning full of errant thoughts. Writing about each opens them to fresh air. All my problems blow away when exposed.

And then I can write clearly. Which is a good thing because my day job needs a lot of writing.

Thanks Kellianne and Buster.

When I started writing again — three years ago now! — 750 Words was invaluable to me. I began a streak that lasted almost a year (Life Happens, as we all know), and since then there have been months where there are more blank days than days with writing. If I get discouraged, or feel that the block might be Forever, I only needed to look into my archives to know that I can break free of it.

The point of 750Words is to build a rhythm, a habit — when life happens, though, that habit sometimes needs to take second place. I encourage everyone who has broken a streak to not give up! There’s a freeing feeling of seeing those blank little rectangles turn from slashes into X’s again, just like the first time. And if it happens again (and it might!) — you can do it. Just take a look at how many days you’ve written, your longest streak, your averages… you can do amazing things.

Use this awesome site to build your habit — but be kind to yourself, too. If you miss a day and break your streak, don’t despair. You’ve done this before — you can do it again. xoxo
