Today is the final 143 Word review. It can be said that the idea, originally thought up by Sinan, has been a resounding success. I’ve produced some of my best work of the year and in a postmodern twist, my final 143 Word review will be on the 143 Word Challenge.
143 simple words, flowing in fragmented fashion to create an impression of a product. A cultural icon. An expression of mindless entertainment. A thought, an opinion, a lingering viewpoint that refuses to leave our consciousness. It must be penned, shared, discussed, commented – it must sit eternal on the internet until someone switches off the world wide web.
That thought process of creation – a penning of the soul will never match another person’s in the world. It’s alone, unique, innovative, drained and repetitive. It uses everything in the English Language to talk about what it wants to. Then it stops, it ends. It never continues past the intended point. Nothing more than, nothing less that. Perfectly defined – for that is prose, critique and artistic wallowing.
One hundred and forty single small words. You write it, I read. It has a mind of its own.
