The effect of 750 Words in my life has been little short of magical!
I started writing on these pages in 2011 and had little expectation of persisting with the practice. That after all, was how most of my good intentions finished up: sputtering out like a damp squib. But it didn’t happen with this site and I have to attribute my persistence to the very clever little incentives that Buster and Kerrianne built into this site: the badges to recognize progress and persistence, the regular lists of people writing this month, and the monthly challenges. Then there are the ‘Stats’ and the fascinating analyses of mood, dominant theme, and the regular daily nudge arriving in one’s inbox every evening.
I have always found Kellianne most forthcoming and helpful on the numerous times I have either had to take time off or on those occasions when either my laptop or router has gone caput and I have been unable to maintain my streak.
It remains a mystery to me how Buster and Kellianne manage to maintain a site of growing complexity and increasing membership.
The cherry on the cake is that I have now completed a total of 4 million words since I started and if I live long enough, look forward to adding another four million!
Thank you, Buster and Kellianne for creating and maintaining this site. It has become my regular daily habit and has taught me how to love the craft of writing words!

I have been consistently inconsistent in writing here over the last few years with the exception of writing during a challenge month; the monthly challenges are a great tool to make me sit down and pour out “my words” and clear my head. Some days it’s a form of prayer, some days a meditation, some days just ordinary kvetching. It has also given me hope that, when I least expect it, I can produce some written thoughts that are meaningful, if only to me. Thanks for this site. It’s important to me and many others.

I have just hit 1350 days of writing and more than 1.1 million words in total. The site does a great job of keeping me motivated with badges and metadata analysis. My mind is clearer and my ability to express myself has also improved greatly.
