You’ve noticed “100-Word Strolls” are rarely ever 100 words. Good. Grab your joe and walk with me . . .
The 100-Word part is to remind me: writers overflow with words. Readers take one look at that little “673 more words” on a Facebook post, and go, “Um–maybe later.” You and I know “Maybe later” almost always means, “Nope.”
Only another writer understands how much effort is poured into any written work. There are exceptions; but most Facebook articles take hours to draft, edit and finish.
I’d like you to routinely read my work. It’s on me, then, to keep it short and sweet.
Ed. note: You just read exactly 100 words. Wasn’t much, was it? That’s why our 100-Word Strolls together aren’t primarily 100 words. They’re intended to be pithy, thought-full little bits of discourse long enough to be worthwhile, yet short enough that you’ll look forward to the next one. So–whether the title is QTMs, 2nd Cup or a Stroll together, I’m working to keep my posts useful and readable. Granger stories? Those can be of any length, and you never know when one will appear. I work to keep them varied and interesting enough to make you always want more–and you know they always have just the right touch of the mystically Divine . . .
For those patiently waiting as I continue work on the book about my miraculous healing journey, thank you for your prayerful encouragement. I love being a writer, and this book is the most challenging task I’ve yet undertaken.
