750 words is central to my life. I do not meditate, since i do not want to be calm or centered all the time or even to aspire to be centered all the time. I want every crazy, loving, hateful, chaotic, angry, fearful and frightening emotion i have and with that the supreme ability to act with a shrewd kindness and a cunning empathy or simply choosing which emotions i wish to share and how i wish to share them.
Testimonial Note from Marc Tretin on Sun, Jul 24
Today I will have five hundred days in a row of writing, and I couldn’t be more excited. It shows that I have made a commitment and lived up to it, even if only to be sure and schedule a day off here and there. And this daily writing has been so helpful as I struggle with my anxiety, depression, and other issues. It is a safe place, an outlet, and usually fun. Even nights when I am sure I have nothing to say, I manage to write at least seven hundred and fifty words. And I am so grateful to have this, every single day!

Dear 750 words, I am very grateful for your existence. Your existence helped me create a searchable data-dump from all my too-complicated days.
Unlike the many creative writers who use 750 words, I use it mainly to record things I want to preserve. Sometimes these are touching and lovable family moments. More often, but also valuable, I preserve emails and Twitter retweets and mail orders from Amazon, all mixed together.
At the end of each month, I download the month’s text and upload it to Evernote. This way, all the months (and now years!) of writing with you is completely searchable.
Warm best wishes to all my fellow-addicts of 750 words, no matter what way you are finding to use it.
