Writing Project: 25 Words that Connect Us

a few writing tools

(From Writing Project: 25 Words that Connect Us – Liz Strauss at Successful Blog – Thinking, writing, business ideas . . . You’re only a stranger once.
Another great project from Liz Strauss at Successful Blog.)

Will you accept my invitation to put 25 words about how we’re connected into a blog post? Here’s how you might go about it.
Think about connections, connectedness, being linked together, synchronicity, serendipity, community, oneness.

  • Write a sentence about it.
  • Count the words you have written.
  • Edit the sentence until you have 25 words exactly.

Notice how your idea changes as you edit and how your feelings change with each rewrite.

Add a picture if you can.
Post your 25 words on your blog by October 16th.
Are you in? Surely you have 25 words to spare for this one.
Have your link here by 1:00a.m. October 17th, 2008 on the clock in the sidebar on this blog. That’s Chicago time.

Well of course Liz! I’ll take that challenge.

Liz brought us a similar project back in July with 25 Words of Work/Life Wisdom. So it’s with excitement that I looked forward to doing this one.

I’m contributing my first two cents here, but can’t wait to see if you’ve got 25 words about connections to share as well. If so, be sure to get them in your blog and share them on Liz’s 25 Words That Connect Us challenge post.

Connections aren’t about how close you can get, how far you travel, or how long you known someone; it’s about reaching across to their heart.

It’s a first impression, and already much refined. But can you just stop at one?

I dare you to share 25 words. And if you aren’t a blogger, then feel free to share them here or on Liz’s comments. Anonymous contributors welcome.
