You're right, Ki, striking balance between showing and telling in only 100 words is a difficult but also unexpectedly rewarding exercise.

I'm amazed at the wariety of topics these mini-memoirs put a lens on, and the depth that some of them contain.

It's not about the topic as much as it is about the emotions they convey and how they echo back into the hearts of those who read them.

So, so many soul-stirring, heart-wrenching pieces I got to read already, and so, so many pants-peeing-funny pieces, too!
