I wrote 20 stories in the month of May. This was one of them. I didn't mean for it to be 100 words. I meant for it to be just a little story that took up one page in my Moleskine notebook. But I love "The Drabble" column in this magazine. They have different sections for different sized stories. This particular section is for stories that are exactly 100 words. And so I made it fit. I like working with limitations. It makes it feel like a puzzle, a game. And I like little stories that fit neatly on one page.
