750 Words

Are you familiar with 750 Words? It's a website that encourages a daily writing habit.  You might be asking yourself how is that different from a traditional blog?  Mosty because you write just for you and no one will ever see it.  If I were to blog some of the things I write on 750 Words I would be embarrassed (in some cases).  Also, if I knew it were going to be seen by others, I probably wouldn't write so freely.

Anyhoo, I registered to be a member in August and am enjoying it so far. I like having a record of how many words I've written, how fast I wrote them, if I got distracted, which words I wrote the most, and how I felt when I wrote it.  Plus you earn points and cute badges for accomplishing goals, like writing three days in a row.

My goal for September is to beat the 45 points I made in August.  Wish me luck.

Best of luck, Evelyn.

I agree about blogging some of the things I write...haha. It's good to talk to yourself about those things. ;) I'm a huge fan of 750 words.

Have a happy day! Andrea

Sounds cool, especially if it counts which words you use the most so you find new words to express an idea.

I love that it makes me write regularly and pushes me not to over think and just write.
