2014 is turning out to be a fantastic year. We’re only into the sixth week of 2014 and we’ve already had more drabbles posted to Drablr than in the full first five months since the service first went live. Amazing!
On top of that we’ve also reached our second big milestone for Drablr. On the evening of February 6th 2014, at a few minutes past eight, the total number of drabbles on Drablr reached 500 when Peter Muscutt posted his The Girl Who Loved the Swastika drabble.
The Girl Who Loved the Swastika by Peter Muscutt
Mrs Warwicker opened the door to her daughter’s bedroom and drew the curtains.
‘Mum!’ came a muffled voice from beneath the covers.
‘Time to get up, young lady’ she said, making her way downstairs.
Maddy Warwicker pulled down the covers and surveyed her bedroom; her kingdom of pink. Teddies covered one corner of her desk, a One Direction poster hung on the far wall. Closing the door, Maddy walked over to the poster, removed it and sat on the bed. She gazed longingly at the large printed portrait of Adolf Hitler underneath, and saluted it with a ‘Sieg Heil’ gesture.
I’d like to give a big thanks to all our drablrs for writing so many amazing stories – I have a feeling that 2014 is going to be the year when the drabble hits the mainstream.
For now, keep on writing and let’s see who can post our 1,000th drabble.
