So far, so good. I got on a roll the other day and wrote three, but one every other day. Today was hard, though. I went off and did beaucoups housework just to get away from writing. Finally, before dinner, I forced myself to sit down and scroll through the prompts I had listed. I wanted to write one for Brains -- he's underrepresented in all my drabbles. I did find one for him this evening.
I've noticed that Jeff (of course), Virgil, Gordon, Grandma, and Kyrano all seem to figure prominently among the characters I find easiest. John, Scott, and Alan less so. I don't think I have any Tin-Tin or Penelope ones in this batch like I do in the 30_beverages
drabbles. They are both mentioned, but neither of them are the stars. That's something I'll have to take care of in the future.
I find I have to manually go through and count the words as Open Office just doesn't count them right. Hyphenated words I'm counting as two, except for Tin-Tin. It bothers me because it's obvious that some of my earlier ones just don't have enough words in them. I wish I knew how to get around that.
One of my reviewers (Xenitha) sparked a drabble sequel to an earlier one! That was fun to write! I've tossed them at susanmartha, lillehafrue
to get feedback on them. I've also invited others to join me in the challenge. So far, no one has taken me up on it.
Written so far:
--Backfired!, sequel to "Salt or Not?"*
--Compulsions, all_unwritten prompt #1457 "trembling hands"*
--Journal's End, all_unwritten prompt #1453 "the last entry in a journal"*
--What's in a Name?, all_unwritten prompt #802 "My name is..."
--Two Worlds, all_unwritten prompt #1197 "water licking the boat"
--Shattered, all_unwritten prompt #374 "It took only a second to change everything."
