The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Member Sarah Skinner

5 cups

In high school, I used to fall into my own daydreams and stories for hours and hours on end. I used to think that writing them down would help get out my ideas and help me get out of the house and my life back on track… but then I would sit there and piddle for hours and hours accomplishing very little (not even 750 words). After college, I finally realized that I was suffering from maladaptive daydreaming as a coping mechanism for depression and lack of fulfillment from my life.

750 words has helped me focus, get out words in a timely manner, and once I complete my 750 for the day, move on to making positive changes in my life while keeping the creative spirit.

Thank you 750 for refocusing me and my stories. With making positive changes in my life and seeking out new opportunities, my writing has also improved, and my new stories are much better than they were before. (It’s pretty easy to top sad, lonely, depressed teen writing.)

Thanks 750!
