Drabble for Blogophilia 23.4


Recently a friend ran a Drabble contest. I didn’t win but I learned how to write drabbles.

 A drabble is an extremely short work of fiction exactly one hundred words in length

 Blogophilia is such fun and educational too. Quotes of famous and infamous people and new words to add to our  vocabulary  It allows all of us to spread our wings and fly not away but right into the fray of a wonderful group of people, who happen to be writers – and musicians and comedians.  The group members cover three continents: Europe, Australia and North America; from the Atlantic to the Pacific oceans  – and part of the Indian ocean as well   Can’t remember if David wrote about llama farms but he did about hypnotized chickens and ostriches, grizzly bears and giraffes

    Drabble!!! Oh-Em-Gee!! That was so cool!
    Loved how you incorporated all the prompts to fit nicely in your Drabble. 😀

  6. Very good. I like 100 word challenges.

  7. Liam says:

    100 words to the T and prefect as can be…
    u rawk Sue!

  8. Hahaha! Awesome! so you had to include all the red highlighted words/phrases, right? That makes it way harder… Great job!

    …some days I can’t help but just nerd-out… though I try to keep it in check for fear of scaring the general public 🙂 Glad you liked *Vac*.

  9. by the way, I did get your email, but I just got home (9:48pm) and I am beat… I’ll read/respond tomorrow 😉 Goodnight!

  10. 8 points Earthling! 🙂 Drabble On! This was wonderful!

    I am sure I have never written about llamas (or even lamas) – but I do think the caftaned one has. He seems to “import” any/every animal he can make a quick profit on.

    So is it a drabble if its not prose?

  12. Sallon says:

    Very creative and I learned something!

  13. bluerose says:

    Sounds like a fun group. I’ll have to try a drabble sometime, but I’ve been uninspired lately.

  14. Spirit Free says:

    Wonderful post….hugs♥

  15. Irene Melgoza says:

    I had never heard of a drabble before! Interesting for sure. I love this lil drabble of yours…you fit in all the prompts so well and described this crazy bunch to a ‘T.” : )

  16. joaniethewriter says:

    Best 100 word advertisement for Blogophilia ever! lol

    I love the people in Blogophilia the best! Hugs to you my Blogophilia sister!

  17. DJ Myke says:

    Very interesting style here… a one hundred word monologue. Fascinating.

    Best part is, you have people believing it was David who was guilty of hypnotizing chickens, when in fact, it was me.

    * hangs head in shame *

  18. Great drabble and the Llamas made me giggle – but then llamas always do 😉

Aw come on say something....
