The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Patron Betsy Devine

25 cups

Thank you, Buster and Kellianne, for 750words.com. I love the way it keeps me motivated to write something (anything! ok well, some days, really just anything) every day.

I use it mostly to summarize the past day, but because I have to write (or paste in) tons of words, it inspires an in-depth reconsideration that is so useful. What I paste in is mostly emails I sent and received that day.

Then (o lovely Internet synergy) at the end of each month, I paste your entire month record (thank you for keeping one) to Evernote. Of course I hope you keep my words around forever, but I have been on the Internet a very long time, so I’m hedging my bets. Also, it is pretty convenient to search Evernote for times I mentioned “Beijing” or “avatar.”

Thurber talks about a figure of speech using “the container for the thing contained.” 750words is a wonderful container for many of my past memories worth remembering. So, thanks a lot!
