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) http://www.gwthomas.org/flashshotindex.htm. I tell you, the stuff here is AMAZING!!

2) http://podcasting.isfullofcrap.com/

3) http://100wordstories.com/issues.php. Sadly, this site seems defunct. But they got years worth of drabble.

  1. I’ll have to check some of these out. One to add to your list might be the drabblecast. (However, the podcast pairs a drabble with a short story, so it isn’t purely drabble.)

Say something and make my day!
