It is like watching the cartoon of a snowball rolling down a hill, getting bigger and bigger until it threatens to engulf everything. The posts in the forum keep coming and my mad idea is gaining steam, getting more popular and growing in size as I watch.† People are coming from outside the original group to express their interest, and a thread on this topic launches in another group. It is a little intimidating to see my idea for an intimate event become the incredible blob as everyone from all over declares they love the idea and want to participate.

I recently stumbled upon this 100words site after failing to complete a 50,000-word novel in thirty days. Yeah, NaNoWriMo kicked my ass but it was my first attempt and I only fell short by about 8,000 words. Next year, victory will be mine. Oh, yes, it will be mine.
Until then, Iíll amuse myself with having the discipline to put down whatever it is I have to say within the required parameters. One hundred words ainít a lot but itís enough to keep the juices flowing. Additionally, the succinctness can only help with my new obsession: writing haiku and tanka.

"Long distance relationships are hard" she said, as the reality set in, but I felt good, refreshed as I drove home. I sat confidently in the driver seat, ready to take on whatever emotion was fed to me, enjoying once again the palm trees and sunshine. Tonight, I collapsed as one beer turned into another, and another. I listened to all the songs in my library on full blast almost two hours before I succombed to sleep. ** Today, work was a bitch. The calls were drowning me more and more and everyone kept asking me where I've been. Messed up.
