The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Marie-Louise Parker

1 cup

I doubted myself. I felt inept, unable to craft a story, despite wanting to be a writer for as long as I could remember. Or at least after the ‘join the circus’ phase I went through. I just thought someday I would begin to write. But someday never came. There were always more pressing matters. Like the ironing. However, I took on the challenge issued by 750 Words. I just wrote, randomly, but consistently. And then I wrote and published my first book. A small one, mind you. One that had been sitting on a shelf for years. But I dusted it off, spruced it up and sent it out. I stopped procrastinating and I began to write. And now when I reread what I so randomly and casually wrote on 750 words, I realize I can craft a story. I can write. And I have a book with copies sold. My lifelong dream is not wrong. I am indeed a writer. Thank you 750 Words. You do good work.
