In the beginning I thought I was alone. Until I entered prompt challenges and saw others followed the same creed not just to get it under a hundred but like me to get the word count to that sacred figure.

In time I discovered there was a name for what we did. Sites devoted to them which I tentatively joined and offered up a few of my own as sacrifice.

And so I was accepted into the drabbling brethren, my brevity welcomed into their clan. And now I feel part of something bigger than a hundred words could ever describe.
