  1. I’m delighted you visited my blog and liked my post–“Cultivating mindful presence: the artist’s task,” which included a wonderful essay by Mary Oliver on creative inspiration as well–because your doing so has led to my discovery of The Drabble. I love the concept. I’ve been reading the stories and am impressed by the authors’ ability to convey stories so well in so few words. I look forward to reading more.


  2. This might sound ridiculous, but it makes me happy every time you like one of the installments on the blog. Thanks for reading and taking that moment to leave feedback. I’m going to take up your 100 word challenge!


  3. Hi Drabble, thanks for passing by. I have to say I usually blog at 3<800 words. but I'll think on this and come back to you.


  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my essay, “Dealing with Rejection when Writing on Sensitive Topics.” I haven’t written too many drabbles, but I do like writing short things. I’ll add you to my list of places to submit.


  5. Hey, thanks for like like on my recent post! There is some great stuff on here, looking forward to getting all the posts! I’ll have to submit some time. Thanks again


  6. What a great medium! I dislike using the overused word medium but it is just that. It’s own perfect beneficiary of it’s creation. I will go forth and drabble, share the drabble, praise the drabble! Thanks for the inspiration.

  7. I’m so happy you visited my blog and liked the post–“Is the idea of a disabled person finding love still in the Dark Ages?” It led to my discovery of The Drabble. I love the idea of so many writers coming together. 🙂


  8. What a fun site! Am now following you and look forward to enjoying more short pieces. Thanks for visiting my site so that I discovered yours. Took the opportunity to submit a piece that doesn’t fit with the dog-theme of my blog. Hope my nonfiction “Prayer Plant” will find a home here.


  9. Thank you for visiting and writing my blog ” Electromagnetic way of life” Sooner I’ll be coming up with a short poem based on warfare I hope you will like it 🙂
