Yesterday was all gray and rainy so I went to the movies with my mom and dad. We saw Snow White and the Huntsman and, hours later, I’m still not sure how to phrase my disappointment.
My first thought when the credits rolled in was: “Seems like half the story is missing.” Too much visual filler or forced scenes to fit in as much of the original fairytale as possible. Not enough time for the seeds that made this version different to fully grow.
Then, when I dug a little deeper into the actors’ performance and some of the iffy writer decisions, all I was left with was “awkward”. Some character archetypes should not mix. Ever.
Anyhoo, since drabbles are so short half the story is kind of always missing so it didn’t make for a great prompt. 😉
Remember how it works?
- Read the prompt and find your angle.
- Write a drabble (100 words story, give or take five words).
- 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).
- In the post on your blog, make sure to link back to this post.
Today’s prompt is: Awkward!
I’ll be posting my drabble at noon!
Awesome writerly week to all of you!
