Notes of inspiration from members

100 cups

Today is a day that I wasn’t sure I’d ever reach: my 1000 day streak.

I know many others have hit this milestone, but it was especially rewarding to me. I find routines difficult as it is and I tend to put off things that I enjoy because there’s so many other things that need attention. Prior to 750words (and particularly, the streak goals) it was not uncommon for me to neglect my writing for days at a time. Unfortunately, for me, writing is like physical exercise. Every time I take a hiatus, my body creaks and groans and my normally easy routine is a slog. The same happens mentally for my writing.

Thanks to 750words, though, I’ve got a reason to put my butt into a chair every day and tap out the words. It’s not always writing that furthers a story; in fact, I’m often just dumping the bilges or venting or writing down some thoughts about the day. Still, it keeps writing at the forefront of my mind, where it needs to be, and it keeps my commitment going.

So, thank you, Buster and Kellianne, for providing this outlet. It’s been a huge help to me. Here’s to another 1000 days!

The reason I stay with 750 Words is because this is the reason that I make sure that I write. I purge the things that clutter my mind doing the day and set a plan for myself to get things done. Another reason is that the site has taught me, in a very practical sense, not to stop. I loved having a one hundred thirty six day run but, what I love better is the realization that as great as it is to rack up a long string of consistent days the most important thing is that even after a missed day and having to start over, starting over is the key!

I have been a member of 750 words for years..and years…so far back I can’t remember how long ago it was I came across it. I had been trying Julie Cameron’s daily pages and they never came out for me. But 750 words spoke to me in a different way and I signed up. Over the years, I’ve gone months without writing a word as well as months of writing regularly. At the beginning of this year I decided it was time to make it a habit so I started keeping track of my stats – days I wrote, days I wrote 750 words or more, word count for the month. And here are my stats for Jan – May: Jan: 8 days; 5,129 words, 3 days > 750; 15 points
Feb: 13 days; 5,864 words; 4 days > 750; 21 points.
March: 16 days; 12,454 words; 8 days > 750; 40 points.
April: 30 days; 38,382 words; 27 days > 750; 229 points.
May: 31 days; 32,290 words; 31 days > 750; 270 points.
Max streak: 55 days.
I took on the challenge to do every day in May and promised myself a steak dinner if I did – it’s booked for tomorrow.
I love this site – I feel welcome here, feel I belong, feel no pressure to do one thing or another.
So, thanks Kellianne and Buster for having it here and keeping it going. I’m proud to be a member and a patron and it reinforces my beliefs about how many good people there are in the world and how big a difference small things make.
