The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Allyson Myers

25 cups

I’ve been using this site for nearly 5 years, and it has become an integral part of my life. I’ve written 1.3 million words of journaling, school work, creative writing, complaining, and thinking out loud about whatever happened to be in my head. It’s gotten to the point where any time I have something I can’t figure out, I come here and write it out. I can’t tell you how many problems I’ve solved that way and how amazing it is to have a chronicle of my daily life that goes all the way back to 2011.

Sadly, my time on this site is drawing quickly to a close: I’m leaving on a mission for my church next week and won’t be able to write my words for over a year. With that in mind, it seemed like it was about time I wrote a note of thanks.

There’s something incredible about having a little sliver of time dedicated daily to writing, and it became really important to me. Some days I felt like I had nothing to say and struggled to hit the mark, and other days I pulled up the site specifically because I wanted to say things that I couldn’t say to anyone else. My favorite thing about writing is that it can be whatever you need it to be, and this site captures that so well.

I remember a couple of years ago when shutting down the site seemed like a real possibility, and I’m so glad that didn’t happen. The way everyone rallied to find a solution to keep 750Words online just shows how much this means to everyone here, including me. This is one of the most positive and supportive communities I’ve ever been a part of, and it’s run by some of the nicest people I’ve ever found on the Internet.

Thanks for letting me be a part of this. 750Words has made a huge difference in my life, and I’ll be back as soon as I can.

Happy writing!
