Setting a limit

Yesterday I started exploring using the 100 words, 100 days challenge as a method for completing a short book – no more than 10,000 words.

It raised the question, should I limit myself to only writing 100 words a day during the challenge?

While it makes the challenge much tighter in terms of constraints, 100 words is not a lot when trying to explore a complex theme.

Yet, brevity is a skill. Being able to condense what is important into as few words as possible is valuable.

Tweets, Haiku, headlines – they are all short and must be short and powerful to work.

What do you think?
