The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Member Merry Belford

1 cup

I found 750 Words through a writing workshop friend back in 2018. I wrote here and there, but the press of caring for my mother at the end of her life made it very hard for me to commit to daily writing. She passed away in February 2020 just before the first wave of COVID hit the US. It wasn’t until summer or fall that I even remembered I had a 750 Words account. In January 2021, I started writing every day. I hit my 100-day mark yesterday, and I am so grateful for the personal motivation this website has given me. It was really hard to start working out again, and there were some terrible days when I didn’t want to write or do anything at all. I pressed through, though, and I now am looking forward to reaching 200 days and 200,000 words. My mother was a writer and artist, and she always liked to remind me that ALL writing is good because it is practice. Thank you, 750 Words and Patricia W. who led me here.
