One Hundred Words of Everything
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated
This is a creative writing community for anyone interested in improving their work, getting feedback or simply having a bit of fun.

Here's how it works:

Once a week, I will choose a topic, feeling or situation and members can write one hundred words based upon it. (i.e. one hundred words containing the word "black" or one hundred words about a thunderstorm) The object is to learn how to effectively fit descriptive detail into as few words as possible.

Things to Remember:

  • Use detail. Even though its difficult to fit much into such a short piece, one or two strong adjectives may make all the difference.

  • Try to stick to a single point of focus. Remember, you have to paint a scenario, make your point and wrap it all up in one paragraph so choose your words wisely.

Please read the rules before posting!
