6-word story: vague advice
The ambulance is coming. Thanks, Hemingway.
Another excuse not to write
Oh woe is me
For a typewriter, I do not see
Sadly, they have gone the way
60-word story: no more bloodshed
The ancient technique of bloodletting is one I know too well. No, I’m not in the medical or burial profession, I am a writer.
Year after year I fill the page, spelling my life force without consideration for my health.
Tonight, however, after a single page I grow faint. The story must go on, but the blood will not come.
When it arrives
It arrives in a torrent
And as I wade
I glimpse loose pearls
Amongst the downpour
Zappai: Catch 22?
I write many things
but only use a few words
am I to be doomed?
Numbers for the Sake of Numbers
To let the words flow
In a constant unfiltered stream
will get you to your word count
but editing will make you scream
Lune: the numbers game
All this writing talk
Let’s just stop
And look at the math
To win NaNoWriMo, participants must write an average of approximately 1,667 words per day (69 per hour, 1.2 per minute) in November to reach the goal of 50,000 words written toward a novel.
Sure, when you break it down like that…
Good luck to all who attempt the feat.
