Words, like spectacles, tend to blur anything they don’t clearly focus. Reading enthusiasts will confirm that reading something that is drowned by adverbs, adjectives and non relevant content is a tiresome experience. Brevity and concision are imperatives for a writer. Thus this month’s iUniverse author challenge is devoted to this notion of precision in the form of a ‘drabble’. Whether you are an established writer or you are yet to a pen a sentence, this challenge is for you.
This months’ challenge will be a 100 word fictional story (a Drabble).
To improve your chances of winning, we will be looking for clear, clean content with a sense of originality and creativity. Use your imagination to transcend traditional ideas into meaningful, unique ideas and interpretations.
