750 Words Helps You Meet Daily Writing Goals

Do you struggle to meet your daily writing goals? Buster Benson has created 750 Words, a way to make sure you keep writing every day.

You can sign up for the free service, track your daily writing and earn stickers for your accomplishments. Benson created the site as a digital twist on “morning pages” from The Artist’s Way. That handbook suggests you write three longhand pages every day. Check it out:

Morning pages are three pages of writing done every day, typically encouraged to be in “long hand”, typically done in the morning, that can be about anything and everything that comes into your head. It’s about getting it all out of your head, and is not supposed to be edited or censored in any way. The idea is that if you can get in the habit of writing three pages a day, that it will help clear your mind and get the ideas flowing for the rest of the day … This site of course tracks your word count at all times and lets you know when you’ve passed the blessed 750 mark. And it gives you a nice big screen to write on, automatically scrolls as you write (like a typewriter), and automatically saves your writing as you go.
