Drabble

What is Drabble? 

A drabble is a short work of fiction of one hundred words in length.
The purpose is brevity, testing the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space.
You'll need the same basic components as you do for a longer story:
A setting
One or more characters
A conflict
A resolution.

No set theme or subject matter

What does it cost to enter?
Nothing. It's free.

Please understand that by entering the Drabble competition you are granting permission to publish the story, here on the Writing Writers Website, so we can open voting...

How it Works:
The £35 Drabble comp will run every month
1st day at 06:00 to the last day at 20:30
(UK Times)

You can send 1 Drabble entry (a story of 100 words exactly, excluding title) per month.
Just send your 100-word story in the body of an email - Don't forget your story must have a title and the title does not count in the 100 words.
