Paragraph Planet (@paragraphplanet) features Amanda Holmes’ super-short “They’d prepared an asado” as today’s “atmospheric tale.” For the uninitiated, Paragraph Planet is a creative writing website that features 75-word pieces on one topic. If you’re a writer, please give it a go. There’s something so satisfying about writing just 75 of just-right words. If you’re a reader, click and click daily. There are some real gems there, and they make for a nice breather between phone calls, a shared human moment before another deadline. Writers may also write a sequel to the posted paragraphs using their own 75 words.
Freelance writer Richard Hearn edits the site. According to his Twitter bio, he pens the “Distracted Dad” column for Latest Homes and “Dad Sense” for Mumsense magazine. You can follow him on Twitter @latestdad.
