Really Short Stories – Writing 100 Words

Write a story as close to 100 words as possible, each and every word a single syllable.
Then write a story as close to 100 words as possible, a single syllable, but add this twist: no word can be used more than once.

(From Daniel “Big Fish” Wallace via John August)

Naturally, I’d go for only 99 words, but that’s just my preference.

As half of the team behind 101projects101days.com, I am a serial starter of things, beginner of projects. I work in bits and in bytes, in words and paragraphs; I work in wood, metal, and paper, in fabric and in leather; I work in fits and in starts. Most of all I work intermittently and inconsistently.
