What is a drabble you ask?
A drabble is a complete story in only 100 words. For our contest I'm going to give you some specific words that you MUST use in that story. Here are the rules:
- Advertise the contest if you like on your blog, twitter, facebook, wherever.
- Grab the button from the sidebar if you like.
- Email your drabble to unicornbellsubmissions @ gmail (dot) com with the subject line: Drabble Contest before March 10th.
- Your story must contain the words: fountain of youth, boots, triangle, nest, plethora
Still not sure what a drabble might look and sound like? Here's one I did for Rachel Harrie's Campaign a few years back. (I don't remember what all the words were, but goldfish was one)
The goldfish bowl teetered on the edge of God’s knee.
A shiny blue and white marble floated inside the blackness within the bowl. Billions lived their lives on the spinning orb unaware of those who watched.
They toiled, strained and reached for more. There must be more.
As their numbers strained the planet’s resources they ventured outward—out into the black void.
And His kitty’s tail twitched.
“Trust me, little humans. It’s much safer in there than out here.” He gently pushed the tiny space ship off the lip of the bowl and watched it fall back to earth.
