Notes of inspiration from members

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!

Hey, I’m Michaël, and I’m addicted to this website (wrote half a million words in 3y).

Everyday, I write a short summary of the 750 words from yesterday. Likewise, every week, I summarize the past seven “daily summaries” into a short “weekly summary”. I do something similar every month, season and year, extracting positivity from my daily journaling, forcing my future self to remember what actually mattered.

I’m so grateful that this site exists and that I developed this writing/reviewing habit.

I would love to talk to all the other awesome writers on this website. If this note of inspiration motivated you to do more reviewing, shoot me an email at [email protected]

I started using 750words as a way to write out my feelings and thoughts for each day. Two years ago I completed NaNoWriMo. It’s been 3-4 years of writing nearly everyday. Now, it’s time to take a break from the streaks. I’ll be back.
