Prompt | Challenge | Day 17 of 120

How little or how much can one communicate in 100 words? I find it a lovely challenge, a better brain teaser than a crossword or sudoku. It’s quite the puzzle to fit a thought in a box. The essence of brevity comes in two words: yes and no; their singularity in any statement make them both powerful and loaded. No, can be absolute, shut an argument down, much like the Supreme Court refusing to hear a case. Yes, can mean maybe, when one communicates a tacit approval, or surrenders when someone acquiesces to mounting pressures. Either one can break you.

Note: Thanks to Tara at a Thin Spiral Notebook, whose prompts I have missed and was glad to find this morning.

  1. Well done! I liken the 100 Word Challenge to a sort of puzzle too. It’s also a way to improve your vocabulary where one word can replace 2 or 3. Glad you joined in the prompt, sorry it took so long for me to stop by.
