It’s the last day of NaNoWrimo and I officially abandon the idea of reaching 100k. I’ll most likely end up at 95k so I’m completely satisfied for my first go at the challenge. I believe my sanity and my friends in need of moral support are more important than my word count. There, I said it! 😉
Now that the big revelation is off my chest, it’s Drabble Time *insert some McHammer beatbox thingy.*
Here is how the drabble challenge works!
- Read the prompt and find your angle.
- Write a drabble (100 words story) OR use my drabble as the opening for a longer story (don’t forget to give me credit!)
- Post a direct link to your drabble in the comments (or, if you don’t have a blog, just go ahead and post your drabble in the comments)
Today’s drabble prompt is : Time!
Here’s my drabbling!
My watch urged me to speed up my pace. Why couldn’t I ignore it? The hold of that little object over my life irked me. As the Powers That Be’s oracle, the circling hands ordered me around. There were places I couldn’t enter until the hands said so. Places I couldn’t leave until the little pieces of metal told the bell to ring. Places I had to be when the damned things required it of me.
I was late to one of those places. I couldn’t be late. My boss made it very clear my job was on the line.
