A year of 111 words per day

My writing of 111 words every day began one year ago today as preparation for a course I taught in the spring; as I was going to have my students write 111 words a day, I thought I should try it out myself, too. At first, then, it was an exploration and demonstration of the possibilities of a form, but over time, unsurprisingly, it became a kind of intellectual diary. And since I posted all my 111-word texts on Facebook, I can look forward to rereading these diary entries in my Facebook Memories, too. And this coming term, I'm teaching the course again, after it was a great success last spring. (Andrew Shields, #111words, 1 January 2021)
