An "atomic essay" is a short piece of writing that is usually less than 1,000 words that conveys a concise point or idea. I first encountered this idea when I took an online writing course called Ship 30. Here is what I think is really great about them:

Ultimately, atomic essays are similar to atomic habits: small, consistent writing efforts that over time can result in more significant output. In this case, I can write faster and more prolifically and share easily with others. Over time I am hopeful that this habit will result in me becoming a better thinker and communicator.
