Welcome to StoryADay May 2013!!
Well done you, for deciding to take on this challenge. Check out the community and all the support you can find in there. But first, let’s get started!
Write A 100 Word Story (“Drabble”)
I’m starting the challenge with a Drabble because although a 100 word story will probably take longer than you expect, it’s still going to take a manageable amount of time.
Many people who sign up for StoryADay are looking for a creativity boost. Plunging into a 3,000 word story on the first day is a bit intimidating.
To make a drabble work,
- Choose one or two characters
- Take one single moment/action/choice and show us how it unfolds
- Give us one or two vibrant details in as few words as possible
- Show us (hint) how this moment/action/choice is more significant than the characters probably realize in the moment
