I passed the Million Word mark a few months ago and after almost 4 years, I have decided to step down from this online writing platform so that I can return to writing in my journal the old fashioned way, with a pen on paper. I will miss tapping out my thoughts about the world and about my day to day life. I view these daily words as a form of therapy that has helped me feel grounded in my daily work as a teacher, single mom, and artist. I have been writing in a journal since I was 18 years old, but have never quantified my words the way I did while faithfully logging in to 750 words each morning. I loved earning badges and keeping up my writing streak. It was motivating to see my name listed with all of the other writers around the globe who had completed their words for the day. I am thankful for the support and sense of community I felt with 750 Words. I will be sending good wishes to everyone who diligently logs in each day to write their words. Keep up the good work! The world is made more peaceful and whole when people like you and me take the time to reflect, dream, and transform our lives through writing. I will continue my practice each morning “unplugged” with the retro technology of pen and paper! The best to you always!

Like many, many others have said, this site has been integral to my journey as a writer. Life has been bonkers for quite a while (in good ways and bad) and when I finally decided last year to get it together and listen to those who said I should be a writer, well, I signed in to the account I hadn’t used in seven years and started to write here right here. (Not sure if that’s clever wordplay or a stupid non-joke, but I’ll let you, the reader, decide.)

If you had told me last year that I would have a 500+ page novel by the same time the following year, I would have laughed in your face so much, you’d need one of those salad bar sneeze shield things to keep your face dry. Gross, but quite possibly true.

But here I am, doing a first edit on my first draft and loving the hell out of it… maybe not the times when I can’t figure out how to fix the loopy logic in my insane story, but I digress… I owe so much of my success to others who have supported and encouraged and guided me through this journey, and 750 Words is absolutely part of that success.

In the last year, I’ve only missed two days. Though I was thoroughly irritated with myself for a few brief moments, those addicting badges and indispensable stats made me roll up my sleeves, crank up the music, and throw down twice as hard. It makes me so happy to be a writer, and sometime (hopefully) soon, I’ll be on the way to calling myself an author without self-deprecation or my eyes rolling into the back of my head.

All that blabbering comes down to this: You have literally changed lives, absolutely including my own, and I’m so very grateful to you, Buster and Kellianne. Please give each other a hug and know that thousands of us are hugging you at the same time. (Uh, not in a creepy way, though.)

With all the sincerity I can muster, thank you. So much.

Today I wrote my 1000th page on the 1006th day of membership. That isn’t a streak, but as much as I enjoy collecting badges, the satisfaction is in the writing. I built plans, worked through difficulties, drafted articles, and recorded moments of joy and sorrow in those thousand pages. None of that would have happened without this site and the encouragement to keep writing. Thank you for this safe place and the insight the statistics give me. I am a better writer now than I was 1006 days ago.
