I had heard about the 750words.com web site through the grapevine. The idea is very simple – every day, within the 24 hours of the day, you must write 750 words (or more !). As you will have read on my site I write about 1000 words a day do the 750 words is easy for me.
There are no prizes but you get “badges” at certain checkpoints for example like when you type for 10 days in a row. The badges have different names. If you miss a day then your run, or “streak”, resets which is mean. I had heard of 750words from someone who is a “spacebird”.
At 365 days I’m now a “Pegasus” and I have written just about 360,000 words (so annual average of 986 words per day). It’s a bit down because I played too much Skyrim in the Christmas 2012 holidays. So now on to my second year writing.
