Editor Notes on Project Oakland: Colorado County
Why limit the amount of words used for a certain piece? The limiting of words forces me to be more creative in telling the story. I can not waste any words in the piece. So I am forced to juxtapose a lot of words that may not go necessarily normally together. The 55 Word Project is my hope to tell some original stories, in a way that forces the story to come alive. I am sure some will fail, but there will be some that flutter. The ones that flutter could someday become a bigger story or part of a bigger story.
I plan to write/publish 365 of them, maybe more-maybe a lot less.
My hope is that you enjoy them.
