I wish I had a extravagant intro to this blog, but this was spur of the moment. So instead of sugaring you up I'm going to keep it real. I'm currently a Senior majoring in English with a concentration in Journalism. My goal is to be the next Khadijah James, I'll give you a moment to look her up..........
..... yeah her. So long story short I want to create and write in my own magazine that focuses on music and culture. But the basis of this blog isn't that. Last semester I had to take a memoir class. Word around campus was the professor (shout out of Professor Guinta) that I selected was hard and that the class was difficult as well. I'm always one for a challenge when it comes to molding my craft and career as a writer.
It was indeed hard, but I took a lot of things with me. One, a surprisingly fulfilling memoir that I put my blood, sweat, and tears into, but the next best thing was the concept of a 100 word group.
In a nutshell, a 100 word group is when a group of people each pick a day out of the week and write 100 words about anything and email everyone in the group, the person the following day picks a word or a theme to write their 1o0 words about and the chain keeps going.
This was a tool my professor used to keep her writing juices flowing and sharp because the key to being as great writer is to write EVERYDAY!.
I loved the concept of 100 word groups. I found myself writing things that I didn't know I had within me in such a short amount of words. Sometimes the number of words you write doesn't effect the impact of the reader.
Unfortunately my 100 word group ended when the semester ended, but I've always tried to keep writing 100 word pieces even if it was just for myself.
That's where the basis of this blog comes. I want to share with you my life in 100 words. I cant promise you that it'll be gossip, scandal, or even though provoking work on here, but you will have a sense of me and hopefully these words will mean something to you.
So without further a do, HI, my name is Minnie, and this is my life in 100 words.
