100 words for your essay … no more or no less. You get 100 words—exactly 100 words—which is both the pain
and the pleasure here. It’s short, you tell yourself. You would write
100 words at a bus stop, on your lunch break, in your sleep. But with
100 words you must tell the whole story in its entirety, so it holds
together like a perfect little doll house. (Your title is not part of
the 100 words.)
Please include a short bio (25 words, max!) with your submission.
Also, did we say exactly 100 words? We weren’t kidding! Also, make
friends with your spell-check, or have a friend proofread your story.
