The site's enticing list of "creative reading" links led me to the highly addictive www.100words.net. To join this online writers' community, you have to write exactly 100 words every day for a calendar month. If you make it to the end (many don't) your month's batch is published. You can build yourself up to a 100-a-day habit by wasting 100 minutes a day or more reading others' efforts. Dive in and out of narratives at random or see one writer through the full 30 days or so: I couldn't stop eavesdropping on "Gotham Muse".
