I love 100 words. I love how it motivates me to write when I'm not sure which project to work on. And I love how it helps me work on projects, a tiny bit at a time. It's helped me with essay-writing--it's since I started doing 100 words that I've had essays and letters to the editor published. It's funny--the letters to the editor turned out to be 100 words long! It's nice to have a prose structure to shape my writing. I found that I did my best writing for my MFA when the teacher imposed a word count.
