Writing on this site the last three months has changed my life. I earned my Nanowrimo badge in January, and honestly, I am more proud of that badge than many of my other "significant’ accomplishments. Thank you for letting me vent, pray and communicate with my soul every morning. I cherish and value this time. When I put off doing my entry until the evening, I always regret it. Thank you for making this an affordable pleasure that brings me hope, freedom, space and a sense of victory each and every day. Blessings to you all.

This site started a practice. I return periodically to deal with a particular project. I recommend it to my colleagues and am occasionally excited to see one join. I love the clean, no-frills feel. This is about getting words down then basking in the joy of having done that.

Thanks.

After 2018 (a bad year) and 2019 (a worse year — I didn’t even finish NaNo!), I knew that I needed to get serious about writing every day again. It would make me feel better — more in control, more productive. I was ready and raring to go on January 1, 2020.

Except, I got distracted by catching up on chores on my day off, and forgot to write. Now I’m struggling with feeling that starting on January 2nd doesn’t have the same impact as if starting on the first day of the Gregorian calendar year; I am already second-guessing myself on my other writing challenges, because I’m already behind. I feel my old projects are just going to languish. I’ve already failed.

Then I remembered: I didn’t have this habit when I started 750 Words in March 2015. I didn’t start on a tidy day like the 1st or the 15th. I was at square one, like I am now, save that I have proof I’ve succeded before, and I can do it again.

Today is the first day towards restoring a habit that brought me great pride, a feeling of accomplishment on even my darker days. I hope that if you’re struggling, this helps you, too. I hope you all have a Happy New Year, and now if you’ll excuse me… I have some words to do!
