Do you need just a little bit more motivation to fit in those daily writing sessions?  Then try 750 words on for size.

The idea of 750 words is that you have an online repository for your writing each day.  750 words amounts to about about 3 pages, so regular writing sessions are going to add up pretty quickly.

Want to try it out?  Just log on to the site, type away, and earn points for your diligence.  Each month, you get a “bowling-esque score card” that logs your points as you complete daily writing sessions.

If you’re looking for a fun and motivational way to get those daily writing sessions in, check out 750words.
