month of flash starts now

I subscribe to the philosophy that more is more; you can never have too much of a good thing. 

Some examples?

OK. JUST OFF THE TOP OF MY HEAD HERE. 

Carrot cake, 
Joe Manganiello, 
other people's Pinterest fails, 
72-degree breezy spring days,
BMs that follow a traditional narrative structure with a titillating beginning, obstacle-laden, edge-of-your-seat middle, triumphant victory, and satisfying denouement that ties up all the loose ends... while leaving room for a sequel.

Also, writing. 

99% of my posts are twice as long as is advisable for internet writing. Why?

1. I almost don't even need to say that this blog is the Joe Manganiello of Mom Blogs. #MoreisMore


i've been thinking a lot about
potty training

epic tantrum this morning
we ran out of apples and cinnamon oatmeal packets
so i diced fresh apples
sauteed them in butter and cinnamon
until they were soft and sweet,
and then added this delicious nectar to the plain packets
but
that
wasn't
good
enough
i'm working on a post
about packing the perfect backpack
for a zoo trip

2. I lack discipline. Just ask carrot cake. Thank God for caftans that match your swimsuit amIrightladies? 

3. Who wrote the internet writing manual anyway? Fuck that guy. 

4. Most things worth reading contain thoughtful examination of complex ideas. In the words of possibly Einstein but sometimes the internet is wrong about quote attribution:

Things should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.

Regardless, it's important to try new things. 

So here comes another Month of Blog... with a twist.

My posts typically clock in around 3,000 words.

"Flash-fiction" usually contains no more than 300. 

This month I'm putting on a leash.

For one month, daily posts shall not exceed 300 words, including photo captions but excluding title.

Month of FLASH.


Word count: 300 exactly
Including captions
Shit that was hard
And this post wasn't even about
anything
