“Drabbles” or “drabbling” is the brainchild of Lenore Diane who authors the blog Lenore Diane’s Thoughts Exactly. A “drabble” is a complete short story of exactly 100 words.
It’s a wonderful writing exercise if you tend to be as verbose and over-indulgent a writer as I am. It’s becoming a blogging tradition that drabbles are posted on Fridays. If you’d like to join in the fun just enter the tag ”Friday Drabble” in your tag line and use the hashtag #fridaydrabble on Twitter and post your entry on a Friday.
I have compiled my collection of drabbles here.
This is such a marvelous idea, and I happen to have Fridays off of work, so I just might have to try this drabbles experiment.
If you can, please do! It’s so much fun and can be a real challenge.
