The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Member Samuel John Wright Jones

7 cups

I just hit my 366th consecutive day of writing on here, which of course means I’m officially past the one year mark. I promised myself I would do this once I hit one year, so here we go I guess.

750 Words has been the kind of constant in my life that’s been incredibly helpful. Its been a source of inspiration, a source of accomplishment, and in my darkest times over this year last year, a source of comfort as well.

Whether it was writing down ideas and thoughts for things I was working on, or just splurging thoughts out of my noggin for the sake of it, 750 Words has consistently kept me writing for over a year now, and I’m incredibly grateful for that

Oftentimes the hardest part of writing isn’t always the planning, or coming up with a story, or figuring out how to make that story work- its actually just sitting down and writing it. There’s been a lot of days- especially lately- where just writing has been one of the hardest things for me to do, and everytime I can’t bring myself to do it I start to doubt my capacity to do it at all. 750 Words is something I can look back on and show myself when my dumb anxious brain wants to make me think I can’t do something- and I’m really grateful to have something like that.

So thank you Buster and Kelli-Anne for 750 Words. I’m going a year strong, and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon
