I never could have written this without 100 words. I have finishing issues. I can start stories without problem, introduce the characters, develop the setting, throw in a few mysterious plot devices, but after a few dozen pages I realise that I have to take all this potential and do something with it, and that's when I lose interest. The beauty of 100 words is that it made me accountable. I knew that if I missed a month, I'd never finish it. And if I didn't finish it, my loserdom would be there on the web for all to see.
