This will be a very short post.
It may not be the same for everyone, but sometimes words get in the way of my imagination. Twitter has been a good “teacher” in this regard. By forcing me to limit my verbalization to 140 characters, it allows the imagination to emerge in place of more words.
One of the ways that we human beings overcome the need for words is with photographs and other images. And that's a great way to bring imagination into the picture.
In the same way, words can paint an image that leaves room for the imagination. One way that I've done this is with what I call My Story In One-forty. If you search for #S140 on Twitter, you'll find several of these (along with a few other odds and ends).
