One Hundred Words----Again

Bob Podrasky is Manager of Domestic Rights at St. Martin's Press in NY. Aside from that, he's a pretty cool guy who reads a lot and thinks, and manages to get out and have some fun too. He proves it sometimes by sending me photos. We wants to squash him occasionally.

He sent me a link to his blog, which is frank and sometimes very funny. This time though, he was inviting me to write a very short story. He tells me he was inspired by my One Hundred Words on the home page of my website.

I did. I liked doing it. I felt better after writing it. More focused. So, having done that with positive results, I'm recommending the exercise to you. You'll have to go to his site for the guidelines and you only have until Tuesday, so if you're going to do this thing, do it now.Homework

Bob is going to post the best of the writings. I'm looking forward to reading them myself and hoping some will inspire illustrations. This could actually turn into a very cool group project. We'll see what happens.

Go be brilliant, in one hundred words.

Ok I did my homework. Towards the end there it sort of took on the feeling of doing a puzzle.

In the end I had to throw out all my "ideas" and just tell one simple truth.

Very interesting!

Holycrap this is hard! I don't know if I'm gonna get mine done or not, I just about melted my brain last night.

Ran through a ton of ideas and found myself writing the one I liked least, as it seemed to issue forth easiest of the lot. I wholeheartedly agree with Robert... this felt just like a puzzle.
