The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Dao Lam

1 cup

I just completed my first One-Month challenge and I am very delighted. For the first time in my life, writing has become a habit and I look forward to doing it every day. Sure, somewhere along the line, I felt like I should skip a day or two. But at around 10pm, I had that nagging feeling inside of me that told me to boot up my laptop and write. 750 words a day is now an attainable goal and I refer to it as my “bare minimum”. Before, it took me forever to even get 500 words. Now, I can write 2,000 words in a row without feeling like losing steam.

I have been recommended this site on FaceBook to my academic friends. In graduate school, the sooner you finish your thesis or dissertation, the faster you see yourself walking down the aisle to receive your diploma and get hooded. While 750 words a day may be too much for people in academics, the practice of writing every day is not. I hope my friends will take my advice and join this site.

Thank you for making this site available free of charge, Buster. Every day, I feel a lot better coming here to see another day marked as “completed.” Sure, those badges are silly but they do keep me motivated. It is like playing games, as soon as I get to one level, I want to get to the next. I hope there will be some badges between an albatross and a phoenix. Also, I hope there will be more badges beyond the phoenix as well. For example, there should be a badge for those who write everyday for the whole year. That would be really cool.
