The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Jennifer Marshburn

1 cup

I have just successfully finished my first One-Month-Challenge and I have a promise to keep that I made to myself. While I said I would treat myself to dinner at a french restaraunt I’ve been dying to try if I finished the challenge, I said if I didn’t I would donate five dollars to 750 words. Well, I’m donating eight, as a debt of gratitude. If it weren’t for the encouragement of this site, I would not have begun to write every day. I would still be writing whenever the mood hit me, or inspiration struck. That’s no way to practice. A good writer shouldn’t write sporadically. It took me six years to finish a first draft novel writing sporadically, and now I’m two thousand words into a new project. Why? Because it’s everyday! Every single day, I make sure that I’m at my computer writing even if it’s nothing more than rambling, which let’s face it sometimes is going to be. But every now and then, I’ll babble my way into a good piece, and then 750 words later I don’t want to stop. That’s what this site has done for me, and I couldn’t be more appreciative. I’ve never felt more like a writer than I do now, able to say I have written 750 words everyday this month. Thank you, buster. This site is the best!
