The other day I ran across a very interesting blog entry on Ewan McIntosh’s tech education blog. He linked to another interesting blog challenging us all to write, and publish online, a 100 word story. The rules were very simple, write a story, but you can only use 100 words, no more, no less.
I loved the idea and I posed this 100 word story challenge to our SMS Guys Read club at our last meeting. We got some interesting results. I even gave the challenge a crack. Check out my story…
By Rowdy Roddy
I’m a boxer; they call me the Tuscaloosa Kid. I’m a veterinarian, the rat vet of the year. I’m an African Missionary, in danger of being hanged. I’m a couple of different software engineers, doing IT stuff. I’m a racing cyclist, with eight consecutive national championships. I’m a photographer; I snap animals in the wild. I’m a lawyer, counseling companies and individuals. I’m a teacher, blogging about the joys of guys reading. I sell Chevrolets in Aylmer, Ontario. I am all of these things and I am none of these things. If you want to find out about yourself, Google.
So now I challenge all of you out there to give this 100 word story a try. The rule for us was that the title did not count against you. Have fun, be creative, it’s only 100 words!
