For Life As A Human Regular Authors & Guest Contributors
What can you say in 300 – 400 words?
Twitter asks us to say something in 140 characters. This vignette form allows you up to 2300 which is about a 400 word maximum, depending on how long your words are.
So, what can you say about life as a human in 300 – 400 words? Can you move us? Make us laugh? Teach, inspire or motivate us? How deep can you go? Can you do it in 200 words? Give it a try.
We’d love to publish your vignettes!
