How good are you at getting to the point? A drabble is a short story that is EXACTLY 100 words. No More. No Less. Write and submit your best drabble, and see if you can get right down to it and put out the good stuff in a neat little package.

Any genre or style of writing is allowed, and content can run the gamut from children's stories to the most far flung fantasy your mind can conjure. The catch is that if the word count is even off by one, you're disqualified. Open to all Writerscafe.org members.

(And if you don't think an entire idea can be conveyed in 100 words, count out this contest description...except for this part at the end...but that's OK because a contest description would be a lousy entry.)


The respect and admiration of your fellow writers.
