    Welcome!

    The challenge is technically over, but feel free to check out the responses listed in the index below. If you choose to attempt this yourself just remember to follow all the stated rules and then send me a PM. I can edit you into the index when you have successfully completed the tasks.

    -Zonoma



    [color=darkred][b]WHAT IS A DRABBLE?[/b][/color]

    A Drabble is an extremely short work of fiction with exactly one hundred words. The purpose of the drabble is to teach brevity and test author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.

    [color=darkred][b]THE CHALLENGE[/b][/color]

    100 Drabbles in twenty weeks.

    [color=darkred][b]THE RULES[/b][/color]

    [color=darkred][b]1[/b] [/color]Each Friday I'll post 5 topics. You will have one week to write a drabble on each topic.

    [color=darkred][b]2[/b] [/color]Latecomers are always welcome, but you must start at the beginning!

    [color=darkred][b]3[/b] [/color]To keep things neat and tidy, please start your own Drabble thread in the era you are most likely to write them for. Post all five of each week?s drabbles in a single post. I will create an index for our threads here in resource. Simply post a link to your thread in here when you first start it, so that I know where to find them.

    [color=darkred][b]4[/b] [/color]You can write them all in one day or spread them out throughout the week, your choice. Just be certain to have all 5 drabbles for each given week in a single post.

    [color=darkred][b]5[/b][/color] You can follow a thread through your drabbles. They can be canon characters, OCs, etc. You can use just one character, a different character a week, or a different one for each drabble.

    You simply must remember one thing:

    [color=darkred]These are drabbles! [b]They must be 100 words each.[/b] No more, no less.[/color]
    [HR]

    Oh, and in case you're wondering, you can find some background on drabbles on [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drabble]wikipedia[/link]. Be sure to click on the links at the bottom. (We find the instant drabble generator particularly amusing.)

    Start your own thread in the era of your preference and link it here. I will add it to the index.

    Just remember, post all five in their same post each week.:) Check out my thread and J_L's if you would like a visual.

    I'm afraid not, lazy, just those who choose to write within the parameters of this challenge.

    I simply don't have that much spare time.:(

    [face_thinking] Someone should, though. There are several worthwhile ones out there.

    Thank you for asking!

    Thanks, KT!

    I am so very pleased with the responses being posted! It's incredible what you can do with a mere hundred words. Congratulations to all of you who have your Response Threads started and those of you who are still writing your Drabbles!

    Anymore takers?[face_mischief]

    I'm game. My writing muse has been getting bored with me, so I'll take a shot at this.

    I've got 3 out of the 5 done. This is such a wonderful idea! It really got the old creative juices flowing. It took me less than 30 min with breaks to write the ones I've done so far!

    Yippee! Done with set #1. You're right -- those were fun. Like little fiction Mcnuggets.
