It’s been a while since I last posted one of my 100 Words or Less ideas. The inspiration for these usually comes from nothing, and they are so easy to write as well. Not a great deal of thought needs to go into them. Although, you can make them as complex as you’d like.
I’ve even done some “poetic” ones which is way beyond my comfort zone. Whenever I’ve been sat in my seminars at university and we’ve had to come up with some poetry, I’ve always frozen up. As much as I enjoy reading it (sometimes), I have always hated writing it. There’s always felt like there’s a voice in my head telling me it’s shit.
And I listen to it… but anyway, here is a non-poem 100 Words or Less!

This is it, the end.
