Right, so over on Fantasy Boys XXX (the new blog Soph and I have for some of our erotic fiction) we're having a go at this:
Drabbles, little pieces of imagination made up of exactly 100 words, are fun. Drabbles are also a challenge that we at FB3X have found really help hone our writerly command of language, focusing us on using words with precision, and we'd love to share the joys of this art form with everyone who'd like to play.
Whether you just enjoy reading drabbles, or you want to join in with writing them, or you'd like to leave us some inspiration, read on and join in the adventure!
Every Tuesday, FB3X will be running a Drabble Cascade
, where we take a one-word inspiration from our readers (we'd love it if you would like to contribute one-word inspirations, just comment on our main drabble cascade post at FB3X, thank you
). To kick off the cascade, we will post a drabble inspired by the word of the week
to the FB3X blog
The Way A Cascade Will Work
To those struck by inspiration
(and no you don't
have to be a professional
writer to join in, anyone can embrace their inner author and we're perfectly happy if you'd like to do fanfic too):
- FB3X will post the first drabble every Tuesday
- Under our drabble you will find a chance to join in the cascade in the form of a linked list
- Post a drabble to your own blog, or website
- Then insert a link into the linked list to that drabble for everyone to find (A hint of the genre of your drabble in the title of your post would be appreciated.)
- There will also be a copy of the linked list code for you to put at the bottom of your own drabble post to encourage others to join in and hence cascade the fun :).
For folks who enjoy reading drabbles: you can then peruse the cascade to your heart's content :).
So What Can You Write?
The simple answer is - anything! Our drabbles here on FB3X will be erotically themed. but feel free to take the inspiration any way you want to, since variety is the spice of life!
Our first cascade
will be taking place on Tuesday 12th March 2013
and before then, we're looking for inspiration, so please, leave us some one-word seeds for us to choose from :).
I'll be posting drabbles over here as well as over there at FBXXX
and who knows what they shall end up being. We very much hope lots of people will join in.
