Discovered New Standard in Drabble

I was rereading the end of Cryoburn by Lois McMaster Bujold. It ends in five drabbles (a word a discovered when I started writing my own 100 word fiction).

I was blown away by the drabbles. I liked all of them, but I especially liked Mark’s and Ivan’s. It’s really amazing how much she managed to do with 100 words.

I decided from now on that’s the standard I would aim for in my own drabbles.

Than I decided to Google famous drabbles. I found a few sites with even better drabbles! Some of them were even genre drabbles, which I thought impossible to do in 100 words. I am positively amazed.

Some drabble sites I found:

1) I tell you, the stuff here is AMAZING!!


3) Sadly, this site seems defunct. But they got years worth of drabble.

4) Thank You Aidan!
