This was a piece I wrote for, “The Drabble” – a website I visit regularly, where each piece is less than one hundred words.
Irrespective of whether I like a piece or not, I enjoy reading all of them, because the published pieces has a quality of writing that is missing these days in literature.
I appreciate that the editors, uphold these standards they expect from the writers.
Please visit the website and try “Drabbling”, yourself. It can fire your imagination.
