Link: one word. so little time.

simple. you’ll see one word at the top of the following page.
you have sixty seconds to write about it.
as soon as you click ‘go’ the page will load with the cursor in place.
don’t think. just write.

[From one word. so little time.]

Unphotographable: a text account of pictures missed
A neat blog with weekly(ish) posts, each describing a brief moment in time as if it had been photographed… Great to use as prompts or something for exercises, or even just to get ideas flowing.

Some links: Fuzzmail & Cliche Finder

WHAT IS FUZZMAIL? Fuzzmail records the act of writing… Dynamic changes, typoes, pauses and writeovers are captured and communicated.

–George Orwell, Politics and the English Language

And clichefinder. Enter some text and it’ll highlight the cliche’s.

About 100 Words


The idea is simple:
Write 100 Words a day,
Every Day, For one Month

You can write about anything you want. Anything. Some people open tiny windows into their lives; others write surrealist poetry. Some writers post finely tuned, perfectly crafted vignettes; others show up at the end of the night and spew drunken nonsense onto the screen.
