I was introduced to oneword.com by a Twitter acquaintance yesterday, and I was immediately intrigued. It’s basically a writing tool that gives you a word a day, and you have to write something using that word within 60 seconds. It’s a very short time to write, but I think it’ll help me with a bit of inspiration. It’s already inspired me to try to write a story using the website. Every day, I’ll spend 60 seconds writing. When the 60 seconds is finished, I’ll wait until the next day to carry on from where I left, but I have to use the new word of the day in my next segment. If all goes as planned, I may have a cohesive story that’s shaped by the words provided by the website. I’m very curious to see where it leads me.
Each week, I’ll post what I’ve written over the previous 7 days. I’m not sure when the story will end, but I may have several very short stories or one long story. In one year, I will have spent only 365 minutes writing, but it should be interesting. Anyone else using this website? My username is jaydeejapan, if you’re interested in following me.

I’m so glad that you like the site! And that you came up with such a creative way to use it. Can’t wait to read your stuff 😀
Thanks! I’m looking forward to seeing how this story develops. I have no plot ideas whatsoever. I’m just going to let the daily word shape the story.
