Tuesday Writing Prompt #8: Drabble

From: SkyeB.
Sent on: Tuesday, February 10, 2009 10:30 PM
Another Tuesday's come 'round. The Sci-Fi writers meeting is in a couple of days. What are you going to wear? Who cares, right? What are you going to share? Ah, a more interesting question for sure. If you've not a thing in the closet, I thought I'd through a drabble at you. Easy peasy, 100 words (exactly) and you're done. From 'The Drabbler':

Tuesday Writing Prompt #8: Drabble
 "A "drabble" is a very short story containing exactly 100 more, no less. Its title is limited to 15 words, no more. And it is a story. Like any story, it requires correct spelling, grammar, a beginning, a denouement . . . it's a story."

Sam's Dot Publishing
is looking for drabbles for its 14th edition of 'The Drabbler'. You're looking to write, right? So, this all works out very nicely.
Not sure what to write your drabble about? Those old TWP's are non-perishable!

Just a reminder of what we're doing here:
1. Write a story based on the prompt
2. If you want, password protect the story using your word editor software (ie MS Word)
3. Upload it to the sci-fi group's files page
4. Email me the password
5. All who participated will get emailed the passwords on MONDAY night.
6. Review and feedback begins
7. A prompt every other Tuesday.

- I'm be at an arty party on Thursday, reveling in the company of other artists and missing the company of other writers. Have some cornbread for me y'all!

Make 2009 the year that you did.
