go ahead, start counting...

It’s easy. Until you try it.

For years, I’ve used a writing exercise to help students focus and refine their efforts. The ability to write reflects the thought processes of the writer, so what better way to let your brain shine through than by composing a carefully sculpted essay, consisting precisely of 100 words?


Write about anything, but write something that leaves no questions or doubts. The finished product should be a stand-alone effort which completely tells the story.

One hundred words. Autonomous and inclusive. Don’t just hit the highlights, but tell the complete story.

Sounds easy, doesn’t it?
