Notes of inspiration from members
Speaking of books, I really like The Organized Mind by Daniel Levitin. 750 words has helped me organize my naturally-very-messy mind for more than 3 years now. I value the way 750 words helps me to clear my mind of “things to remember” (because writing them down here means I can access them later.) It also provides a low-risk space for writing quick drafts of plans, emails, even the occasional poem or essay. Not being distracted by formatting choices makes the transition from thought to writing much quicker, at least for me. I am proud to be a patron and encourage others to sign up if you haven’t already to support this good website. Thanks so much for 750 words!

My book of poems, PINK MATTRESS, is for sale on Amazon. It was published by New York Quarterly press.
Testimonial Note from Marc Tretin on Mon, Nov 07
I’ve been away for over a month for a variety of reasons. I kept missing days, even days where I’d written things: I was forgetting to paste my words in from GoogleDocs. So, instead of requesting a fix in my streak every two weeks, I thought I’d take a break instead.
And what do you know: I wasn’t writing at the same pace as I used to. I wasn’t writing at all, most days. Just fits and spurts, here and there. I’m getting winded before I hit 1k.
I’m nearly at my one-year anniversary of NaNo15, where I wrote a total of 102k in a single month of prose, and I’m not in any shape to try and do that again. So, I knew I had to come back.
I’ve decided to use all my cups for this note, and signed the contract to write every day in November. I miss the magic of feeling accomplished every day no matter where I am or what I’m up to, because it helps my mood and helps me feel like I can be a Real Writer™. Thanks for being an easy place to come back to, 750. :) Here’s to getting back in shape for the marathon that is NaNoWriMo!
