A large ePublisher has a call out
for stories
with poetry somewhere in the plot.
I LOVE these calls for submission.

Why?

Because there is nothing
that makes creativity flow
like a constraint,
the more unusual the better.

You would think it would be the opposite.
It isn’t
because constraints force you
to come up with different solutions.
I can’t hand in my same ol’ story line.

In the superb post
101 Tips from 50 Small Business Bloggers
(well worth the read),
Garr Reynolds shares
“Embrace constraints.
Constraints and limitations are wonderful allies
and lead to enhanced creativity
and ingenious solutions
that without constraints
never would have been discovered
or created.”
