This section is an attempt to give you Drabblers a vague idea of upcoming story themes so you can craft your 100 word stories with an idea or subject in mind. We try to regularly read all the Drabbles posted in our forums but Drabbles with a theme category listed up by the title really grab our attention!
Good Drabbles that fit into one of these categories are often more likely to be picked for the show.
Please mention the theme category that your Drabble hits on in the Subject line of your post.
Thanks and Happy Drabbling!
For APRIL 2016:
Category: It's a Dog's Life - Nothing ever goes your way, and then you die. Sucks to be you.
Category: Non-Zombie Apocalypse - Sure, sure, hordes of mindless slavering invaders, but what flavor?
Category: Pet Funerals - We love 'em, but the little guys always break our hearts when they leave too soon.
Category: Myths and Legends - They tell us where we from, and maybe where we're going.
For MAY 2016:
Category: Single Parents - Everyone knows you always need a backup. But what if you can't get one?
Category: Glad Max - Who says the post-apocalyptic irradiated desert wasteland can't be a little fun?
Category: Losses and Sacrifices - The things we give up, and the things we get in return. (Protip: always shop around for the best deal for your soul; buyer's remorse is a bastard.)
For JUNE 2016:
Category: Road Trip! - Where we goin'? What're we doin' when we get there? Can we stop for ice cream?
Category: Summer Reading - There's nothing like getting lost in a good book.
Category: Road Trip Back Home - Well, that sucked, and now also we need showers and hate each other. At least it was cheaper than a cruise.
Category: Communication Skills - Sometimes people really just need to say what they mean and not do all this hinting and stuff.
