Libri Touches has come up with a great challenge that gets the grey cells moving. Have you ever heard of a drabble before? Neither have I. It's a story consisting of exactly 100 words. So here is my reading related drabble:
"When I read the short story The Eyes by Edith Wharton it brought me back to my childhood. My fear of mirrors returned as I remembered the Bloody Mary stories my friends told me. Even as an adult I have had a difficult time shaking this fear. As I walked to bed that night I ducked under pictures with reflective glass and would not use the restroom for fear of seeing a figure reflected back at me. I even tucked my feet under my comforter so nothing under the bed could get me. I will never read that story again."
I ended up having to remove all the adjectives and adverbs to get it down to 100 words but the point wasn't to create a masterpiece, thank heavens. And I want to give a great big THANK YOU to my childhood chums(that would be you Shannon and Heather!) for scaring the CRAP out of me and altering my perception of the world irrevocably. May the Eyes watch you in your sleep forevermore.
