A drabble is a short work of fiction of one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space. (Source)

Based on the above definition, we announce a weekend event for drabble writing on our Facebook page .

Event details:
1. A picture is worth a 100 words, so pen your story (fiction/non-fiction) based on a picture prompt (in exactly 100 words, nothing more and nothing less).
The pictures are sponsored by Sid Balachandran. You may connect with him on Instagram (@itookthose)

2. Top 5 stories shared as comments on the thread will be showcased separately (previously published works will not be considered)
