Sometimes this site annoys me. Not the site itself, but the thought that I still have to write. All 750 words or just 200 more, doesn’t matter, I just lose motivation. Although through this site I have learned that sometimes it is really easy to write 750 words. And that I can absolutly do it.
I prefer to write (fan-)fiction on here because writing a story makes me feel more accomplished. But at times I just switch into a diary mode. Often it’s because it fills the words faster to just write about my day. Other times I use it to process really important things that happened. And right now I’ve written almost 880 000 words and my streak is 600 days strong. I’ve started 1035 days and only once forgot to upload and write the last remaining words.
And although I tell myself that I want to write fiction on here and that that is better, today as I revisited some old entries I’m equally if not more grateful for the ‘diary’ entries I’ve written. Inbetween days my soul is laid bare here and integrated into the fiction parts. Being able to revisit the emotions and reactions I had is great and really helpful.
Apart from that, I love everything else too.
Before I started here, I wrote maybe 5 pages every six months. Maybe a bit more. Now I’m doing this every day, which would have been impossible to imagine just a few years ago.
My word record is not the highest, because I get distracted easily so short passages are just perfect for me and I realized that here.
Writing has become a habit. It is as simple as that. And as astounding.
But enough of my rambling, I just wanted to say how grateful I’m for this site.
I knew that, but today I really realized its importance so it was time to put it into words.

750words does for me what meditation did not. I can become one with myself, which is all my joy, rage, fear, sorrow and disgust without judging myself harshly. To be utterly myself without telling myself I should be better, wiser or more loving, is the epitome of freedom. I live by one simple rule: I know all that I feel and I do what is morally right. Or more simply: I act right and feel aII I feel.

I just completed the March Challenge and I cannot believe how much I have grown. Giving me a goal to write 750 words everyday for a month and helped me to develop a habit of writing. As I embark on my Ph.D., 750 words has been instrumental in helping me develop as a writer!
