The Friends & Members of 750 Words

750 Words exists because of mutual good will between the people that run this site (Buster & Kellianne) and the people who use it (you). The site wouldn't exist without the generosity, patience, and humor of everyone involved. For the first 3+ years that the site was running (Dec 2009 to May 2013), the site was free to use but with some encouragement to donate. That served us well (and most importantly, generated enough income to keep the site up), but as the site grew the need for support also grew.

On June 12th 2013, all existing users of the site were given lifetime free accounts (we hope you'll continue to donate when you can). New accounts created after June 12th, 2013 are now required to become members within 30 days after signing up in order to keep writing. Everyone will always have access to previous writings, stats, etc, even if they choose not to become members.

We're listening to your feedback and want to make sure that first and foremost, we offer a friendly and safe place for people to dump their private thoughts. I expect that we'll continue to adjust the way this all works for the near term. Thanks for being an awesome community!

Who runs this site?

Our names are Buster and Kellianne, we live in Berkeley, California with our two sons (Niko and Louie) and this is something we've built and run in our spare time.

I wake up and look forward to writing—and I feel wonderful after I’ve written. Thanks for that lightness during the day.

I’ve been steadily building a daily journaling/writing habit with the help of 750words. I love how lightweight and simple it is, and seeing my stats is icing on the cake. Streaks are also a really powerful way for me to build my motivation and intention over time. Thanks for building such a great tool!

Starting to fill-in another streak, after a long hiatus. Thank you for your effort maintaining this site.

I’ve been using 750 Words everyday for the entirety of my free trail. I never knew that something so simple could have such a profound effect on my attitude, outlook, and all round mental state. I do a lot of work with people, and as an introvert, this can be draining on my mental energies. 750 words has become the perfect way to decompress at the end of the day. Thank you, 750 Words.

I’m on a 44 day streak now – on track with my New Year’s resolution! When I have the energy to come up with something new, I write poetry or make progress on a short story, but some days I journal, and that helps me enormously too. Margaret Atwood said that sometimes writing is like a flashlight in a dark place and this is definitely true for me. For anyone reading this, use your flashlight for good and keep writing!

I love 750 Words. I’ve been using it for years now, off and on. Anytime I need boost in my writing motivation, this is where I come. Their monthly challenges are inspiring. Last month, I signed up for the January challenge. I didn’t make it, but I still wrote WAY more during the month than I would have if I didn’t have those little check boxes egging me on. Thanks, 750 Words! I’ll be back, again and again. :)

Three achievements in one day… and another pending!

Definitely a 10 cup note this – I have spent the month writing website content for my own business, and other useful words (in between the ramblings, journaling and nonsense that comes out the you’re tired but have a target to meet).

I decided I was going to go for the Double Flock and the Nano badges in January as they both needed 50K words to complete. So signing up for the month’s challenge made sense too. Just completed all three of these and feeling a warm sense of accomplishment.

Now I just need to get 750 words out every day for the next 7 days and I’ll get my Phoenix badge for a 100 day streak.

Thank you 750 Words – you’ve certainly made getting that many words out enjoyable! :-)

I have been here for almost a month now and am very pleased. I started writing depressed and I really hope that the regular spelling of 750 words will help me clear my mind and free myself from depression. Every time I start writing in a very sad state, but by the end I feel how I feel better. Thank you very much for this opportunity!

More fun stuff, and easier customizing.

Although I cringe at the use of comic-sans typeface, the simplicity and elasticity of this service has made me a believer. I did look at a bunch of other options before landing here and some were very robust, 750 words grabbed me at go. Hmmm, maybe I’ll copy and paste this into my next entry? Thank you 750 Words

I really like how the site uses the badges and goals to keep you accountable. Writing down a reward for myself has kept me writing every day.

I’m new to 750 Words but so far it’s been great to journal and lay out my ideas for the day. I need to rebuild a writing practice and this has been a great way to start.

Typing sounds

As you press each key, 750 words plays a typing sound. This is essentially audio feedback that provides a sense of progression as you write.

I basically got this idea from OmmWriter which is I think an amazing program to help writers focus on content production.

I have been an on again off again “closet” writer for many years. You know the one with lots of ideas but little in the way of consistent execution. I had made a solid commitment to build my daily writing muscles this year and complete my first novel. With the help of 750 words I know I will accomplish what I set out to do in 2019. Flame on!

750 words has changed my life. The daily nudges, the challenges, the word tracking, the badges, all of it. It is because of 750 words that I can finally say I have written over 150,000 words towards my goal of one day being published. Thank you guys, from the bottom of my heart. I’ve been a member of this amazing site since August of 2015, and while I’ve ghosted more than a few months at a time, I truly feel like 2019 is going to be the year I make this dream a reality, a feat I’d never be able to accomplish without what you guys have done for the writing community. Thank you. Merci. Gracias.

Being new to 750 words is an awesome experience and one I recommend to anyone who is searching for a platform to free write. So easy to use but is fun too..so much better than any other of the more complex writing sites. Thanks to Masterclass for pointing me to 750 words..

on mobile, after i write enough to fill the screen every time i finish a line it sends me back to the top of my entry, and then i have to scroll back down to see what i’m currently typing. if only this feature was fixed, i would be so happy!

I use 750Words.com to declutter my brain to get a clearer mind before my day start. I use it to reflect and be thankful about my day before I end my day. I tend to sleep better. I write to brainstorm my thoughts and ideas then set goals afterward. Lastly, I use to share all my expressions and feelings here and not to share to a person so I tend to talk less with others since I used this website even to my love one or to my best friends. I tend to listen more to them talking than to talk like I used to which is great because i get to learn more about them. Writing is therapeutic for me especially writing freely and not worry that people will read your writing later. Therefore, my heart and mind are more open to write because of this I have explore a lot of great ideas or many amazing ideas and thoughts have revealed to me. Loving it. Will continue to write and write…. thanks to 750Words.com.

Note of thanks to 750 words for the “schedule time off” feature and for knowing stuff happens beyond our control. My internet was recently down for several days but I was able to use this feature to save my streak and my badges. I couldn’t get online but wrote my pages anyway. This site is awesome. Thank you!

750 Words is an essential part of my day that helps me to get everything else done. I use it as self therapy, to write about things that are bothering me or otherwise weighing on my mind; I use it to remind myself I need to straighten up my home, pay bills, get work done, and even have some fun time; and I use it to warm up my writing muscles, since I am a professional writer. I recommend others use it in similar ways, because it can really turn our life from scattered to focused.

Thank you so much to Kellianne who restored my streak after a time difference glitch wiped it out. And thanks too to Buster, and for this site that keeps me writing.

Hidden Count

I would love it if I had the option to keep my word count hidden until I reach my 750 word goal. Then just maybe a note at the bottom saying “goal achieved” so I know I have reached it. This would allow me to focus on my writing more than just my word count.

i’m very new to this site — well, not new, but a few months in. i’ve not been able to write consecutively for longer than five or six days — because of work and trips and the like — but every day i do, i’m glad i did.

i wake up with a lot of anxieties and thoughts colored by my depression. this site hasn’t cured anything – but it’s helped me start my mornings by putting all my feelings and thoughts on paper (screen) and seeing them. it keeps them from floating around in my head – and prevents them from gaining the strength they gather if they are allowed to reside solely in my head as i navigate my day to day life.

it’s almost as if 750 is a vault where i do my best to lock up bad thoughts. the ones that are harmful to me and my reality. they jump off the screen and some still stick to me, but more than ever, some are okay with staying contained.
sometimes those harmful, nasty little thoughts just like to be seen. and acknowledged. and they are on 750. and i think that makes those creepy crawly no good ideas of myself and the world happy.
they want attention like anything else, and i can do that here in a safe way.

so, it’s good.
