The price for a gallon of gas continues to rise in countries worldwide.
In this New York Times article, the writer describes how additional riders are flooding mass-transit systems in the U.S. Increasing amounts of commuters have stopped driving to work as they feel the financial strain from high fuel prices.
Commuting via mass transit? Grab a notebook, pen and a seat (perhaps).
Your assignment: Write ten six-word stories about your commute.
Focus on precision. Fit as much as you can into those six words. Search your surroundings for strong images, dialog, sounds, sensations and smells. Tune in to what is around you as you craft your micro stories ... and please keep an eye on your personal belongings.
If you post any of your stories on your blog, leave a comment here with the permalink. I'll link to all stories in an additional post about what you all eventually create.
Have fun! These are just drafts. You can always edit them when you arrive home.
