Challenge: AFF Monthly Drabble Challenge

AFF Monthly Drabble Challenge issued by Admin

Writing a story of 100 words is an interesting challenge because it tests the writer's ability to express an idea (setting, one or more characters, thoughts, conflict, feelings, etc.) in 100 words. It's a good challenge for writers who are used to writing long stories. I especially love reading drabbles when I'm busy but want to read something short.
Rules
  • You're not required to participate every month. You participate only when the prompt of the month inspires you.
  • Your story must be a drabble of exactly 100 words (according to the word counter in Microsoft Word). Please don't use the word counter of AFF because it's a bit off, thus not reliable. It seems AFF counts hyphenated words as two words instead of one.
Monthly Timeline
First day of each monthThe prompt of the month is posted on the homepage.
Between the first and last day of each monthWriting and submitting. You can submit your drabble anytime and I'll validate it (if it complies with the rules).
Last day of each monthDeadline to submit your drabble of the month.
Submission
Please do not submit your drabbles separately. All drabbles written specially for the Monthly Drabble Challenge must be submitted as chapters in a collection of drabbles. When you submit your first drabble:
  1. In Summary, type in Written for the AFF Monthly Drabble Challenge
  2. In Story Type, select Collection of Drabbles. If you're not sure if you will participate in future monthly drabble challenges, you may select Drabble for the time being.
  3. In Chapter Title, erase Chapter 1 and type in Month Year - Title of your drabble. For example, you decide to participate in the Monthly Drabble Challenge of February. Your chapter title should be February 2015 - Title of your drabble
  4. In Chapter Notes, copy-paste the prompt of the month using the code provided on the homepage.
  5. After your drabble is validated, add your collection of drabbles to the challenge by clicking on the "Respond to the challenge" button.
  6. When you submit your second drabble, you can add your second drabble as a chapter in your collection of drabbles.
Badges
The Writer Badge: given to authors who have written at least one (1) drabble for the Monthly Drabble Challenge in the year of 2015, 2016, 2017, etc.
What are badges?
