The glove had been removed slowly– finger by finger– in a way that was more [you've had this coming for a long time, my friend, and now you're about to get it] than it was [it is snowing like crazy outside and I am so glad I don't have to leave the house again for the rest of the weekend and gosh these are tight did I gain weight in my fingers?] before it connected with my cheek. The gauntlet had been thrown. The challenge leveled. The other shoe had fallen, but as a glove and not as a shoe.
Anyway, I, as you know, have never been one to back down from a challenge. Therefore, challenge accepted.
I made all of that up in my head just now.
It turned what would have otherwise been a mundane communique into an exciting little creative endeavor that I sort of watched unfold in my head.
What’s the point of all of this? To be more creative.
How? By writing 300 posts over the next 365 days all of which will be 300 words or less: 300//\\365//\\300 (like that? I know– the styling! So creative!!).
Why not 365 posts? Because life gets in the way or sometimes you’re just too tired or sometimes you’re traveling or sometimes you don’t feel well or sometimes you don’t have anything to say and besides 300 out of 365 is still a commitment but not a strict one just a kind-of-strict one so it won’t be like a job it’ll just be an exercise.
No, but really, why? TO BE MORE CREATIVE. TO HAVE FUN. TO TRY.
I don’t know what I’ll write about over 300/365 days. I just know I’ll write.
And if I fail? See reason three (two lines above).
So, here goes.
