The Friends & Members of 750 Words

750 Words exists because of mutual good will between the people that run this site (Buster & Kellianne) and the people who use it (you). The site wouldn't exist without the generosity, patience, and humor of everyone involved. For the first 3+ years that the site was running (Dec 2009 to May 2013), the site was free to use but with some encouragement to donate. That served us well (and most importantly, generated enough income to keep the site up), but as the site grew the need for support also grew.

On June 12th 2013, all existing users of the site were given lifetime free accounts (we hope you'll continue to donate when you can). New accounts created after June 12th, 2013 are now required to become members within 30 days after signing up in order to keep writing. Everyone will always have access to previous writings, stats, etc, even if they choose not to become members.

We're listening to your feedback and want to make sure that first and foremost, we offer a friendly and safe place for people to dump their private thoughts. I expect that we'll continue to adjust the way this all works for the near term. Thanks for being an awesome community!

Who runs this site?

Our names are Buster and Kellianne, we live in Berkeley, California with our son Niko, and this is something we've built and run in our spare time.

This is one of the best writing websites I have ever used in my life! I hope more publicity can get more people to sign up for this because I can’t tell you how awesome this place is for all of us writers to enjoy!

Remember when people used to write testimonials and give one cup in donation? I remember those days.

The fact is that today there is only English language analysis and all the stats are based on this. In the case of another language a lot of analysis is useless.

I enjoy the badges and would be pleased to see a new badge every month! It’s a long time from albatross to phoenix!

So, I started writing here in May, 2011. That’s seven years of writing pages, not every day, but at least every month. When the words quiet down in my head, I actually appreciate the quiet and don’t push it. So, I get badges for quantities of words written vs. words written in a row. I have written two books worth, so far. Mostly garbage words, but they don’t stay in me to make relationships worse and visioning more sluggish. These 750 words have written me through to being “clean” and “present” and “at peace.” Until I am not, and then the structure is there to have access to that again. Amy

now I know what it means to develop. a habit! I’ve been doing this since 2011 and I don’t think about doing it – I just do it -I have made many. resolutions, not only at the New Year – and I have never stuck to any of them-I have never stayed on a diet longer than two days, I still. bite my nails, holiday photographs are undated, and unlabelled, and the tins of paint that were to transform my kitchen are still tightly sealed – but 750 words!! I cannot start the day without them -they are as automatic as brushing my teeth -I don’t care if I’m writing deathless prose with these words or not – in itself a freeing attitude -but they open the door to the day, every. day -

I am a bullet journaller, I like Morning Pages, but having it in a hand written formal annoyed and worried me – what if someone else saw it? I’m a mummy, a wife, a teacher, so many little eyes everywhere! I thought I would not use 750words, as I didn’t think Morning Pages digitally would make me happy, so I dubiously signed up for the free trial (a very generous one!) and now I find I miss it when I don’t do it. Thank you for providing the thing that I need! You are amazingly intuitive!

Maybe something for 1500 or 2000 days in a row?

Thank you so much Buster and Kellianne – I was struggling to find a way to clear my mind until I found you. Now, each morning (or early afternoon, if I’m honest) has me clearing my head. I have gained more clarity in my life, and I’m very thankful.

This site is the foundation of my writing habit. I have never written for so many consecutive days before finding this amazing resource. Thank you!!

especially on difficult days, writing 750 words becomes an act of self care.

I love the badges – anything to compete for, even against myself, motivates me to keep writing. :-)

750 Words keeps me grounded. I mostly use the daily ritual to write down my long term and short term goals. This in turn helps me focus my days work on what’s important. And when life throws unpleasantness my way, the freedom to write it out often takes the edge of the pain, tiredness or problem. Unexpected ideas and solutions sometimes come as a bonus…

750 words has helped me to steel myself every morning, when my anxiety is at it’s worst. I used to wake up frazzled and unsure of what to do with my day but 750 words has helped me to be more efficient with putting my feelings into words and helped to clear out the thoughts eating my concentration away. My mind is clearer and calmer after a writing session and I can concentrate and plan for the things that matter.

I would feel so much better knowing that what I am writing is encrypted and backed up. I hope you will move in this direction!

I love how 750 words has helped me see my state of mind as I make important decisions, and what I care about. It is so useful to see my writing laid out like this, and it has helped me have epiphanies over the last several weeks.
