The Drabble

Thanks The Drabble for publishing The Flute Seller yesterday. I am so thrilled!

If you are wondering what a drabble is, here’s the Wikipedia definition:

A drabble is a short work of fiction of around one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author’s ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space.

When I first came across the word drabble, I thought of Margaret Drabble whose works I studied way back in college.

Do go and check out the other drabbles – stories, non fiction and poetry. There’s a new drabble published almost everyday.

  1. Congratulations, my wordsmith friend! Though your story is not about nostalgia, ‘The Flute Seller’ reminded me of the Anjan Dutta song ‘Shunte ki chao tumi?’ Have you heard it?

    1. Thank you so much Rita! 🙂 I don’t remember so I refreshed my memory on YouTube. Oh yes, I have heard this before! I see the connection now. 🙂

Let me know what you think.
