In 200 words or less, tell us about an essay or Medium post you don’t have time to write. Just give us the broad strokes: the essay’s topic and the form it would take. Maybe a few inchoate thoughts. Maybe a highlight. A beginning or an ending or a middle. A first sentence or a last. A thing you want the reader to feel as they read this nonexistent essay. Up to you. You haven’t had time to develop this idea into a full-fledged piece — yet — and that’s perfectly okay.
This is inspired by Sarah Ruhl’s book, 100 Essays I Don’t Have Time to Write. It’s wonderful.
