Writing like other forms of human endeavour responds well to structure and arbitrary rules. In this journal all entries will be no more than 123 words. A blank page is a form of self-indulgence, an endless void into which anyone can scream as loudly as they like for as long as they like. Such extended navel gazing doesn’t interest me. I am more interested in restriction and discipline. Iambic pentameter, blues chord progressions, the conventions of genre fiction, BDSM, 2D platform games; they all benefit from having implicit or explicit restrictions. I have selected 123 words as the limit for this journal in the hope, however remote, that it might lead to something interesting. It probably won’t but that’s OK. Nothing matters anyway.
