“The Two-Tiered Train Trip Tautogram” is a project I wanted to do for a long time. In college, I finally made it happen. My goal was to make a thousand word story all starting with one letter. On top of that, I wanted it to make sense and be a story someone of an average or slightly above-average reading level could understand. It worked, just, it was really long, especially when I read it out loud to the class.

Today I shortened it to take out the repetitiveness and anything that didn’t need to be there. I think it’s a lot easier to understand this way, you know, so someone might actually read to the end now. And I wanted to make it even easier to understand. Achievement Unlocked!
