RE: Looking for 100 word stories

Ha ha! That did make me laugh. I've approved it and it's scheduled for later this month. We have a multi-parter coming up!

RE: Looking for 100 word stories

Hmmm... what's the collective noun for drabbles?

How about, a century of drabbles? Big Grin

I like that -- or a ton of drabbles

I guess if there were only a few of them, it'd be a dribble...

RE: Looking for 100 word stories

I posted you a story today, Rosen. Hope it's okay. It said I had 10 too may words, so I changed a dash for '...' and it was okay again! I don't know why that worked! Huh

Thanks for the new stories folks.

Kate, I don't know why that happened with your word count - most puzzling!

RE: Looking for 100 word stories

Another Drabble for the current Dribble:

"Darkness"

Darkness.
No room to move.
A sharp rattling sound and we all jump, startled.
A dry, grating, sliding – we are exposed, naked, the pale glow slowly pouring in.
Pick me! Pick me!
Searching fingers grasp in the half-light and find me. Yes!
I am dragged from my prison – no more than a box. It closes behind me.
Strong fingers grip me and I feel the pressure as my head is pushed against the wall. I am dragged – it rasps loudly, and then such exhilaration – a splutter, and with a phosphorous burst I cast aside the shadows... but I am consumed.
Darkness.
