A drabble is a type of story. Writing a drabble is known as drabbling. I learned about it...no, I won’t confess my fanfic sins here. Drabbling is aggravating, highly addictive, and great fun. It also teaches editing.

Here are the rules for drabbling:

  • The body of a drabble may be factual or fiction. It must be coherent and be exactly one hundred words long, including articles.
  • Use complete sentences and standard grammar.
  • Standard contractions are permitted.
  • Using acronyms or hyphenation is cheating unless it’s standard for the word in question.
  • Special E2 rule: Don’t pipe any links.
  • Happy drabbling!
