100 Words, 100 Days: Day 3. On Nothing.

This is a post about nothing. What are you up today? Nothing. What are you up to now? Nothing. What are you thinking about? Nothing at all.

Consider the validity of these responses. In my opinion (and as the author of this blog, it’s the only one that counts) it is bloody difficult to do nothing, to think nothing, to write nothing about nothing. Nothing is something. The vast nothingness of vacuum-packed space is something.

You may consider sitting on your arse watching The Hills as nothing, but it is, in fact, something.

This blog post is 100 words about something.

  1. I remember writing a post on this not so long ago. I think it was entitled when you have nothing to write, write it anyway.

    Jimmy, m’lad… I think what you are doing is a good thing, and I trust you will keep it up for the full 100 days.

    Here’s a hint. Next time you’re in a loquacious mood, write 3 or 4 in advance… and queue ’em up. ))

    Best of luck with this!

  2. This is absolutely the Seinfeld of blog posts. Loved it!

  3. Wow! This is the 2nd post I’ve read lately about “nothing” that really was “something.” If you’re interested:


  4. Doesn’t writing them in advance defeat the purpose of the exercise: to write “off the cuff” each day? Pre-writing, while certainly could be used to fulfill an obligation to post something each day, seems a bit disingenuous at best. One would never consider throwing baseballs at a batterless home plate the day before a game and then count them as pitches thrown the day of the game. One would never consider…oh, wait, I have. Never mind that analogy. One needn’t fudge to fulfill one’s obligation to write one hundred words each day. I’ve done it here in about five minutes.

  5. These days we don’t spend enough time in the world of nothing. We need time to just sit and contemplate our navels—oh, that’s something isn’t it. I love your new blog site.

  6. If I read this and find it inspirational….is that something? or is that still nothing? lol

  7. What an all around great blog

  8. Hey I know I’m late with my comment but I truly loved finding someone else who is into nothing. Good work! “When nothing is done, nothing is left undone” – Lao Tzu
