Can You Blog in Exactly 72 Words?

This content originally appeared on my former Chicagosphere online-media blog, hosted on the Chicago Tribune‘s ChicagoNow network.

Seventy-two words seems a random and abrupt limit to apply to a blog post. Maybe not to Ruibo Qian, the Uptown blogger known as King Princess, and Hugh Adam, blogging as Simian Sam. Qian alone founded the seventy two words fiction blog to tell entire stories within that very limit. Now Adam writes, too, and so do sixty-eight other authors including poet Tao Lin. They think there’s a book in it. Literally.
