Some advice on adverbs: Delete them. All. Pick better verbs.

  1. Thank you for liking my post. I believe it’s the second time, and I failed in the common courtesy department after the first.

    The Drabble is an intriguing concept, and I shall try my hand at this new approach when I can.

    Cheers to the Anonymous Drabbler(s)!

  2. I submitted a drabble more than a month ago, August 19 to be precise, and haven’t heard back. Received no acknowledgement, so not sure it is under consideration. Is it still being looked into?


    1. Hi.. I’m so happy you find interesting and challenging content on my blog – THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT! I pride myself on my ‘self-inflicted’ rule to never solicit Likes, Comments or Follows. My attitude is if the content inspires it then people will do it.. 😊 Thanks again..

      1. BTW – I love your concept as well, I think you are doing great things for the Net in general, it’s just not my thing at this time but it is comforting to know that avenue is open to all.. Kudos!


    1. I’m a songwriter. What kind of DRM is offered via your site or what do I need to do to publish on your site with protection? Great idea.. some questions.


  3. Thanks for liking my blog post. It’s great seeing the creative spark and experimentation here. Keep up the great work!


  4. Thank you so much for reading my post “That thing you do” on DewofMay. It means a lot. Really like this concept you have here and will give it a try. Great work guys!


  5. Hey The Drabble,

    Thanks for your like of my post “Coronavirus: Melbourne under lockdown”. I get the impression you’re based in the States, so it’s great that our antipodean ennuis are of interest to you!

    I’ve always been fascinated by the Drabble format, so I’ll be sure to check in with you from time to time and see what’s shaking in the super-short fiction world.

    Best wishes,

    Dean Kyte


  6. Hi there, I submitted my drabble on 22nd April however haven’t heard back from anyone yet. Should I assume it’s rejected? Not sure why you keep removing my query. I would appreciate if you could get back to me. Thanks, Andrea


  7. Is your website still accepting/publishing stories? I haven’t seen any new ones since December, and I miss the daily content. Thanks.


    1. Hi! thanks for asking, we’ve indeed been on a temporary hiatus. We realize submissions have been piling up, and we plan to return to posting regularly, albeit likely less frequently due to time constraints. Thanks for reaching out!
