For this reason when my weekly assignment is due with a requirement to be between 225 and 275 words, I have the hardest time keeping it short. I just can’t seem to do it. How can you possibly make a point in 275 words or less and make it clear? I’m learning to do just that. In doing so, I am learning what details are necessary and which I can probably do without.
So I now have this challenge. Lately I have been bouncing anywhere between writers block, and writers run – where I can’t stop writing and have so many details and things that simply must be expressed. The challenge now put me at a loss of words. And in doing this I find out:
The ability to write well isn’t about how much you can write, but how much you can say without saying so much.
Here is the challenge. Write a story in 6 words or less. Leave yours in the comments and share with friends. Let us see those creative juices get flowing! I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
Here is mine:
“Running hard. Pursuing Jesus. Always enduring.”
How much can you say without saying much?
