A few days back I ran a short survey to gather feedback on the current Drablr system and how things could be improved. The response has been great!
To get a better understanding of what Drablr members want from the site, I’m posting my comments on the survey results to Facebook so we can discuss them Drablr further. Continue reading “Author Survey Results”
2014 is flying by and we’re already up to our 17th, Drabble of the Week award. This weeks award goes out to long standing Drablr, Michael Brookes. For his latest drabble, Michael isn’t his usual chilly self, but “A Man and His Shed” a great drabble all the same.

This week we have a new Drabble of the Week award winner. Helen has only posted a couple of drabbles in the month since she joined Drablr, but both are excellent 100-word stories. Helen’s second drabble, Cold Heart, is a worthy entry for our weekly award. So a big congratulations.

Over the last couple of days some of our drablrs have started their own word challenges – write a drabble based on a subject with three words that must be included – which have produced some really great drabbles. If you’re interested in challenge based writing, then read on.

It’s grisly, as many of Peter’s drabbles are, but it’s also a great classic Drabble. Our Drabble of the Week goes to Peter for his creepy, “A Fine Stew”. If you don’t enjoy the more gruesome side of storytelling then this isn’t for you. Apparently though, Peter has plenty of fans who do, and they voted appropriately.

Long time drablr, Jonathan Hill, is at it again, and his _Outsmarted_ drabble is certainly worthy of our Drabble of the Week award. Visit his profile page to read more of his great drabbles, or go and check out his 100 One Hundred Word Tales if you’d like to support his writing by purchasing his book.

Wow! Our Drabble of the Week award goes to ***** **** not only for how fantastic a drabble it is, but that it cracks open a whole world of ******* and ***** – something ** *** must **** ***** of. Our drablr ***** hasn’t picked up the award for sometime but a chord has certainly been stuck with fellow drablrs ***** and ***** who seem to completely agree with them.
You must read, then go place your vote and share this drabble as soon as you can, as who know’s how long it will be before it’s taken down… Continue reading “Drabble of the Week 14w13: *** ******** *******”
We’ve had a number of themes running on drablr over the last few months, and today’s Drabble of the Week follows a popular one. This weeks award goes to Kate Gowers with her Unicorn themed drabble; it’s a little risqué but a classic non-the-less. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

Again Michael steps up with another fantastic drabble. I especially like this one for its subtlety – I certainly had to take a moment on this before I realised exactly what was going on. As always, Michael really knows what makes a great drabble and this one is certainly worthy of the Drabble of the Week award.

Over the last couple of months there’s been a great deal of activity here on Drablr with hundred’s of drabbles being posted in the opening months of 2014. One of our more prolific authors has been Francine, who has posted almost one and a half drabbles a day since she joined at the start of January.
I’d like to send a big congratulations to Francine for being the first author to post 100 drabbles to the Drablr service. I’ve enjoyed all of her stories and look forward to the next hundred!
Here is Francine’s 100th Drabble, “Amélie or the forbidden pleasures 3“, posted on 10th March 2014; Continue reading “Our First 100 Drablr”
