You can write 100 words before finishing breakfast with one-half your brain tied behind your back. But slow down! This isn’t as easy as it seems.
A Drabble must be 100 words exactly. No more. No less. It must be an original, fictional story with a beginning, middle, and end.
So, I’ve decided to sweeten the pot. How would you like to win that book you’ve been drooling over on Amazon? Which book you say? ANY BOOK YOU WANT! I have a wish list a mile long and I bet many of you have a book or two that you haven’t bought yet.

Here, let me show you one I whipped out this morning so you can get an idea.
Everything will be perfect. Skillfully, I apply the eyeliner and spray the masterpiece that is my hair. Heels, little black dress: preparation for my lover. I live for him, ache for him, depend on him.
His car arrives. A flutter of anticipation fills my belly. My eyes linger on his chest, his face.
The door opens.
I flash a come-hither smile.
He strides across the room, his body inches from mine.
He stoops, groping the recliner for the remote.
Our toddler walks in and vomits on my shoe.
I wince. “Happy Anniversary, Dear.”
The TV flicks on. “What’s for dinner?”
*Snicker* I had you going there for a minute, didn’t I? That’s as risqué as I get, people.
Details: All entries must be acceptable for YA viewers (Nothing nasty, people, or I’ll delete it) If your book cost more than $25 then I will send you an Amazon gift certificate for $25 to go towards the purchase of your choice. The winners will be chosen using Random.org and announced on June 14th.
