The Drabble is On !
Steve's proposed a challenge for writer's group before next Tuesday, something he calls (I'm fairly sure it's made up) Drabble. Drabble
Drabble is played sitting around a fire, while sipping brandy and partaking of pleasant conversation with friends. The first person to finish a novel wins.
This is the traditional game. For our contest, how about the more modern flashfic length of 100 words exactly? Titles etc are not counted but the story must be 100 words, no more, no less. We shall also omit the fire, the brandy and the pleasant conversation.
I've been using some of Unlce Kafka's first lines to get me started (there are some examples up at Silverwood Acres), but anything goes. Good luck!
