Might as well give up and run
By Morgan Olson

“I am so lost in my life with no idea what to do.” James whispered to a small metal rectangle that happened to be his Nokia Prayer Atuner 310i

“I have nothing and I just need some help.” James almost cried

After a moment of lag, the Atuner sent the prayer up to God with a hum.

James sat quietly and a few moments until a deep vibrating noise shook the desk where he had set the Metal Nokia Atuner.

God says: "Keep working.”

that was all the little screen said

Not the best advice for a young suicidal robot.

Love the Nokia Prayer Attuner. FTW

If may go Miss Grimsley on you for a moment, I might suggest the following minor adjustment in the above sentence.

"After a moment of lag, the Atuner sent the prayer up to God with a hum."

(The real Miss Grimsley would be able to actually give the technical description of what was wrong with the original sentence... )

You've got some real interesting ideas coming out in your Drabbles. Must be something in the water in Portland.

I too have found the drabble to be a great form to start with. Not only is 100 words approachable, the inherent difficulty of getting a good idea inside of one is a good literary workout.

Don't get discouraged if drabble burn-out occurrs, and remember there is a short-story thread if you wanna stretch your legs more.
