1P100W #100 – Last…

I’ve finally made it to my 100th 1P100W posts. I think I want to stop this “genre” of posts right here.

I’ve actually been planning to stop for quite some time, but it seems cleaner to persevere until the 100th post.

Writing 1P100Ws has been rough. You might think the short word count is easy, but it actually requires a totally different skill set. The keyword here is “control”, and there is such a thing as too many words.

So, here’s a picture of my dinner tonight to wrap things up. 炒鱼肉米粉 Fried vermicelli with fish fillet, tapao‘ed (takeaway) from the nearby food court.

No more 1P100W!

[108 words]


  1. These short posts are much easier to write and can act as fillers when we have no time to blog….but then dispensing with the 100-word cap will make it even easier to write. It reminds me of school when we had to do a summary (if that’s what it’s called) of an essay or karangan! 🙁

    • Yeah, I prefer that too. Not that I will do away with short posts. I’ll just do away with restrictions so that I can express myself better.

  2. Don’t worry, it’s understandably hard to achieve the word count. I’m facing that with my assignments – it’s either I’m under or overboard.

    Congrats on reaching your 100th 1P100W post! =)

  3. For me, it always happens like this – When I planned to write a short post, it always become a long-winded one. When I needed to write a long, detailed post, I am always out of words. Hence I just go with the flow and see what happens.

  4. I would think 1P100W is easier to write unless you are super cheong-hei kind of person and find it difficult to control the amount of things you want to say.

    But as you say your blog is your way of promoting your writing then I think better write long posts rather than 1P100W posts. So bye bye 1P100W.

    But has it really been 100 1P100W posts? So many already? I don’t feel like I have read 100 1P100W posts here.

    • Without the restriction is much easier than with. Most of the time I ended up writing 120-140 words, then I have to crack my head on how to reword everything to make it fall within 10x words. Very difficult actually, and I’m getting lazy these days. I’ll still do short posts, but without word count restrictions. 😛

  5. This meehoon looks plain like those sold in morning pasar…Good that u have a foodcourt nearby, no need to travel far for food. Why wanna stop 1P100W? I tot u like challenge?

    • Well, minus the fish fillets, the meehoon is probably just like those kon lou meehoon. But they are really stir fried, so the aroma is better. 😛

      I do like challenge, but I’m getting lazy. Too lazy to control my word count as I type. 🙄

  6. Congrats on your 100th post.

    What do you mean by stop at your 100th post? Stop blogging or 1P100Words?

    I think it’s admirable for a blogger to talk about aspects of their life. As Nicki Chen in Nickichenwrites stated ‘you started off semi-anonymous and before long, your readers want to know more.’ I pretty sure this was what she wrote not too ago.

    • It is easier to write if there is no word count restriction. If I can write 120 words and then not bother rewording to 10x words, much much easier. 😛
