I’m a teacher, a mother, an artist, and a writer. Basically, I want to do it all, but my time and energy are limited. NoMoreThan150 started in 2013, when I was frustrated with teaching. I googled alternative professions and found a posting that required a statement of “No more than 150 words explaining why you’re perfect for the gig.”
The thought of boiling myself down to 150 words seemed impossible.
But it was also enticing.
I didn’t apply for the job, but I did make a blog of it. Writing in “No More Than 150” is challenging, but sometimes it’s all any of us have time for. Since 2013, this blog has gone through many phases. Now I’m coming back to basics: posts in 150 words or fewer, with the word count posted at the end, and the occasional “More Than 150” post for topics of greater importance.
