Dribble drabble trouble

Morgen Bailey runs regular free to enter 100 word short story competitions. These are known as drabbles - not to be confused with dribbles.

She offers on-line writing courses as prizes.

I know this is a lot more than a dribble, but then I usually write a lot more than 100 words.

This stuff makes a reasonable amount of sense before I start typing ...

I should try one some time since I'm a man of few words...

dribbles and drabbles

I can't get my mind off what I just read over at 'A bit about Britain.'

In Scotland, a hard is a firm place to land. That's what she said.

(that immature humor may be too low for someone on your side of the pond)

sigh

I did a 100-worder (a drabble?) last week for Helen Yendall's competition. It's a good exercise to come back to every now and again, and it helps with the dreaded synopsis thing.

I'm on the wane side of motivation right now, maybe later. Thanks.

Patsy said...

That should be an advantage, Alex.

Not just Scotland, Mac. I'm meeting a friend at Portsmouth Hard this morning.

It is helpful in getting our minds set to write something concise, Jackie.

Glad you like it, Hilary.

Hope you're soon waxing, Oscar.
