Hello, Shakespeare fandom! Welcome to Tell a Hundred, the Shakespeare drabble challenge blog. I’ve been wishing for ages that the “exactly 100 words” definition of “drabble” would make a comeback, and then I got the idea for this blog, and then I let almost six months go by without making it, but then Shakespeare’s birthday/deathday shamed me into action, and here we are!
So. As implied above, the object of this challenge is to write Shakespeare fics of exactly one hundred words, no more, no less. I find writing under that restriction pretty rewarding, and I’m hoping others do, too! I’m planning to post a new prompt every Monday (suggestions are welcome), and anyone who wants to participate can post their drabbles in the “tellahundred” tag (or submit them). I’ll reblog all entries of exactly one hundred words. Other than that, there are no winners or anything - I just want people to have fun. And, y’know, validate my old-timey definition of “drabble.”
The first prompt will go up tomorrow. If you’re interested, please spread the word!
