[ WEBSITE ] 750 Words SPLURGE YOUR THOUGHTS NOW TO FOCUS LATER. 750words.com
It’s hard to describe exactly what this tool is. An online diary? A notepad with expectations? Your next manuscript? Perhaps it’s all of those things, because 750 Words is essentially a blank canvas — but it does have a goal, and that is to get you writing every single day. That little green cross that you get each day you write is strangely satisfying and reaching that 750-word mark feels mountainous at first, but as each day passes, it becomes easier, especially if you’re working towards something. So if, like your reviewer, you have an idea for a piece of writing flying around inside your head, but you don’t have time to refine it (maybe because you’re at work), then blurt out as much as you can on 750 Words and come back to it later. “What about putting that idea on your phone instead?” I hear you say. Have you ever tried typing 750 words on your phone? Excessive phone tapping is time-consuming — this experience is much nicer. Plus, once you know you’ve done your 750 words for the day, you can focus on other things with a clear mind.
