The Good Patrons of 750 Words

A Note of Inspiration from Patron Holly White Roddam

Adding Offline Writing

I like this idea of Jeffrey’s of being able to add days when you don’t have Internet access, as long as you wrote off line on that day. Michael Nobbs wrote on Wed, Jan 05 about a “get out of jail free card”. I am sure he didn’t mean it this way, but it makes me think if I DON’T WRITE on a particular day, I could use my “free” card to get back in the game by writing twice on another day.

If we could have a way of adding days in when we didn’t have Internet access, I would fully support this. I would even support giving Michael his streak back if he wrote on the day that he couldn’t log on and letting him be the first to use the new system .

I am now at 138 days in a row, but almost lost it when I was at a retreat and there was “no Internet access”, at least for “campers”. I was able to get permission to use the office computer for 30 minutes the two days I was there, so I was able to save my streak. There have been a few times when it has been iffy, and I would hate to lose my streak now!

I know this is just for us, in that we are writing for ourselves, and we are all on an honor system, but I would feel cheated if my 200 day streak (in another 62 days ) and someone else’s were not the same because they were allowed to take a “day off” and I wrote without missing a day.

I am glad to see that I am not alone in this fear of losing my streak, and am really thankful to both Jeffrey and Michael for bringing up ideas to consider.

I love this site and have noticed that my typing has improved as well as being able to get over 130,000 words out of my brain and onto my 750Word pages since I started!

Now if I could just do as well with my Health Challenge!! 
