Robert Hruzek of Middle Zone Musings started a contest a while ago. I saw it and thought the idea was great, but : work, "...run Forrest, run...", time, "...it's your destiny, Luuuuke", and all sorts of even better excuses lead me to the last day, almost last minute of the contest.
What was is it all about? Well, Robert read a post of Roger von Oech about imposing limitations on yourself as one method of enhancing the creative thought process.
Have you ever tried writing within extremely severe constraints (time, space, words, content)? Well his challenge invites you to write a story in... just... 6 words.
Today I crossed the article I had flagged in my RSS reader... and felt like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland (again!). So I thought, okay... let's give it a try anyway, right!
It's Sunday, there are tons of interesting things to do outside (yep... mood of the moment), but it's raining like hell outside, so I have a few minutes to write a post and find an idea. Wonderland, wonderland... help me please... errrrrrr, ok... ok... here is my rabbit (not to say turtle) contribution :
"Once upon a time... The End"
