Gamification stuff we love: 750 words
For those of you that manage to stay clear of the Pokemon Go craze and prefer a bit of writing time. How about some gamified writing with 750 words?
750 Words is a site where on a daily basis you can add your journal, ramblings, blog, book, business writing etc. Effectively all the site does is provide you with a writing pad on your chosen device. The more you use it, the more feedback you will receive on yourself, your writing and thinking. You build up a statistical profile like in the image below:

If you ever used journaling as technique to work out where your head is at or work through an issue, you may find this a useful insight. It tells you trends based on what you write.
Some of my female friends do a morning journal, which is what is recommended in the book “The artists way”, where 3 pages of writing daily are recommended to truly tap into your own feelings and values about certain things that are going on in your life. I never succeeded in doing the three pages for a very long time, but I would do a brain dump that gives me feedback.
It is a fun way to gain insights into your writing and thinking.
