The Psychology of Labor: 6S

In About All Publications, About Word Works on 01/26/2010 at 16:41


The Six Sentences [6S] submission guidelines are as follows:

Length:  “six consecutive sentences”

Title:  “should be no longer than 36 characters, including spaces (because 6×6=36)”

Response Time: “all submissions will receive a response within six days”

Clearly, Robert McEvily — “creator and editor of the NY Times recommended writing site Six Sentences” — likes the number six. Figured it might be fun to embrace his challenge of 6’s, so I did.  In six short sentences I explore the complexities of money and work.

Here it is:  The Psychology of Labor

And I wonder:
