Doesn't 2 posts in one day violate the 50-100-50 rules? I think one post a day is implicit, don't you?

This isn't part of the writing challenge. This was just something I had to write b/c I couldn't believe the local news spot that aired after I had written that post last night.

That's all! I just felt like writing! I was sort of amazed by it. But then again, I am easily amused.

Also, I can tell you are not counting my words. This one has more than 100, I'm almost positive.

My browser does not count words. It doesn't make your blog posts look like letters, either.

Wait, do the quoted words count towards your total?

I have been giving that question serious thought lately thunder. On one hand, they are not my words, so why should they count? On the other hand, the post is supposed to consist of 100 written words.

It's a conundrum. Maybe we should have a vote.

Said very seriously.

Mind you, I know nothing about The Challenge, but I would have thought it meant at least a hundred words. If it has to be exactly a hundred, then you would have to spend time rephrasing to try and hit the precise goal. This would seem to detract from the benefit of pure writing.

The rule in my mind says exactly 100 words. And you are right that it detracts from pure writing, at least with me. I start out thinking of editing, which is probably not good. Although, it does help me to eliminate "justs" and "thats" that I tend to use too much when I write. Like I just did. Oops, I just did it again. Ahhhh, somebody stop me!
