Drabble (Noun) – an extremely short work of fiction of exactly one hundred words in length, not necessarily including the title. It’s purpose is brevity, and the expression of ideas in a confined space.
That’s the common definition, I use the term rather loosely not confining myself to the 100 word limit. I have decided to write a Drabble Story starting this week, fiction of course.
The story will have short chapters of no more than 500 words, until its ending. How many chapters will be involved I cannot say since the characters have always determined the pace, motives, and length.
It’s name is Bayou Sauvage. It’s reason; fifteen years ago I created a game for an online social network. I wrote the premise, the background story, the characterizations, the rules, and was the writer of many of the storylines until I walked away from it ten years ago. I spent a lot of time researching, building the characters and storylines and I grew to love the story itself. So I decided to bring it back to life because I can. I hold the copyright…..
