“Cure for an obsession: Get another one.”
Write a history of your obsessions using a maximum of 20 words. No hyphenated words allowed. 20 words max. No cheating. It’s having to pare down your list that makes this an interesting assignment. Make every word count.
Here’s a sample response from my son Eli, who was given the assignment, for a college application, to use 20 words to describe himself. It was his response to that assignment that gave me the idea for this prompt. If you’re not around 17-year-old techy kids, you may not recognize the items on Eli’s list, but it will give you the idea. In his case, the title counted as two of his words. I’ll give you those two for free. Twenty words without the title. Go.
This will be a great on to post on the blog–so when you’re done, follow the directions at the bottom of the post.
