I haven’t been around for any number of reasons. I’ve decided to post a drabble this week. A drabble is an extremely short work of fiction of exactly one hundred words in length not necessarily including the title. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space. This one is 104 words including the prompt.
Have you tried to drabble?
It was nearly morning.
The three girls knew the night of fun would end at sun’s rise. The curly haired blonde with the face of porcelain and blue dress cried. “Oh I don’t want it to be over.”
The dark haired girl in the red dress and white apron scolded, “We will yet have another night to play.”
The red haired girl in the gold evening gown said, “I wish we could sing and dance all the time.”
The three girls, feeling the first rays of the new day, climbed onto the white shelves.
Emily would wake soon and would look for her dolls.
