a writing teacher had assigned students to write some 75 word stories and most of them just couldn't do it.
I have found that for me in doing 75 word stories, I am learning how to write more in fewer words. I have a greater appreciation for mastering the written word now. Except, it doesn't help in writing my novels...more words needed there!After just diving in and trying it, I think the difficulty lies in overthinking it. I opened as if it was a story that didn't have to worry about word-count, skipped over a lot of detail, realized I was halfway there, and tied it off. Or maybe it's because I often have one-paragraph descriptions where I don't go into loving detail about something happening because it can easily be summed-up in a short space.
Very true! I'm getting there with the 75-word challenge, but I have aways to go. Great writing and thinking exercise for sure!Yes, but they need to be meaningful words and the 75 makes us think about how significant each word can be.
