An interesting blog variant – commit to writing exactly 100 words – no more no less – for one month. This forces concision and a form of poetics you don’t often see in weblogs – sort of a long-form haiku. The sister of a friend of ours came up with some beautiful entries, mostly dream.

One Reply to “100 Words”
Wow, I haven’t heard anyone mention 100 Words in a long time. Its a great concept, and surprisingly difficult to fulfill. But, very rewarding.
I think the main reason for its difficulty is how open-ended it is as far as how you can approuch it, but how tight the writing has to be. As you point out, 100 words, no more no less for one month.
