100 words for your story … no more or no less. Tell a story, write a prose poem, pen a slice of your memoir, or try your hand at an essay.
You get 100 words, which is both the pain and the pleasure here. It’s short, you tell yourself. You would write 100 words at a bus stop, on your lunch break, in your sleep. But with 100 words you must tell the whole story in its entirety, so it holds together like a perfect little doll house. (Your title is not part of the 100 words. It’s your bonus here; it can be short or long!)
Please include a short (2-3 sentence, max!) bio with your submission. Also, did we say exactly 100 words? We weren’t kidding! Also, make friends with your spell-check, or have a friend proofread your story.
Stuck already? Look at our monthly photo prompt. Tell us a story.
