You know, it's not like I haven't before been down the road of Why not short pieces that are fun to write? I recently read over all of the 99 Problems pieces, and I really like them. Trying to say something valuable in 99 words or fewer was a fun challenge. #280Tuesday and #OneSentenceWednesday should offer similar opportunities.
That I never simply made a focused practice of solutions of exactly that nature suggests a mental/emotional block: that all else being equal, I've tended to choose struggle and anguish over joy and ease.
