750Words.com

I’m testing out 750Words.com as a platform for motivating student writing as well as maintaining my own writing schedule. The site allows visitors to set a goal for writing 750 words per day, through a system of self-determined rewards and penalties and challenges to write so many words per month.

The site also features a helpful system that tracks the structure of writing, not only the emotional content of your typed words but also which types of words–auxiliary verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, negations–that your writing tends to use most frequently, all helpful towards becoming a more concise writer.

Would anyone else recommend the site?
