If anyone needs an online scratch pad to vent, type out thoughts, journal, whatever, I highly recommend 750words.com. The idea is that 750 words is the sweet spot for clarifying your thoughts in writing. With the internet, my hands have atrophied into typing claws, useless for writing things down my hand, so a service like this is really great.
Anyways, they're moving to a paid model on May 1. Anyone who joins before then will have a lifetime free account, anyone who joins after will have a monthly fee.
