A Drabble is a story told in one hundred words. Exactly one hundred words. Not almost one hundred words, not close-to one hundred words- exactly one hundred words.
It can be frustrating, it can be fun. If you are lucky, you can dash one off in minutes. If not, you could struggle for hours to strip your thoughts of everything except the absolute essentials.
You can drabble almost anything- a fleeting thought, an epic story, a poem, a journalistic piece. You can also collaborate with friends as crazy as you to mount “collaborate drabble projects”.
Whatever you do, it’s addictive.
And in case you are wondering, yes, this is a drabble. And it took me all of 2 minutes 47 seconds to write it (yes, I had the stopwatch going).
