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.
