Today is my 10-year anniversary of starting to write at 750 Words! Coffee all around! : )

Over these 10 years, I’ve written 1,332,016 words. That fact alone is a huge lesson for me. It is a testament to what I can do with a little bit of (sometimes) consistent effort over time. I’ve only written here 43% of the time for the past 10 years and I still managed to write over a million words. If I had tried to explain that to myself 10 years ago, she would still be laughing.

For the heck of it, I went back to the first entry I ever wrote to see what was going on 10 years ago. I love that I can go back to any entry from the past 10 years and pull it up (and export it for good measure!) Thank you!

I love that I can search 10 years worth of writing for a particular phrase. Not too long ago I did that and found everything I thought would “light me up” for the past 10 years. It was insightful. Again, thank you!

Because I can : ), I’ll leave you with a line from what I wrote 10 years today. The sentiment is as true today as it was then, if not more so.

“It’s feeling like reading about 750words today wasn’t an accident, like it was a piece in this cosmic puzzle I’m living, a big, important edge piece maybe.”

Thank you, Friends! Keep writing : )

The time it takes me to write 750 words non-stop is around 20 minutes. And 20 minutes is roughly considered a ‘flow’ state of creativity. So my advice is, if you’re not doing it already: write non-stop, don’t get distracted. See how you feel about it. Oh, and don’t stop at 750. If you have it in you, get it out. Have a break. Then go for 1,500. (It’s only taken me a few years to work this out. But hey, better late than never, right?) Thanks 750 words for all that you are.

I have been writing for 2007 days as of 12/29/2020. It’s been a great ride but now is time to move on. December 31, 2020 will close my writing here, but I will carry on on my own. Thank you Kelly and Buster for having this wonderful platform. Lots of Love Pam
