Maybe. But, it's too long to be a twabble.

Yep, I bet this one's destined to be preserved in the vat of formaldehyde that is DC Twabble of the week.

Sorted - can it go in the show now? :D Although I also really like Amadeus X. Machina's one as well.

Oh, my bad, I thought punctuation didn't count. Thanks for the catch!

If it is to be used, by all means use TheBigBadG's version. But if there's a vote, put mine in for AXM's. That thing's flippin' beautiful.

The itching won't stop. Scratching is useless. I dig deeper. Muscle and bone exposed. Still no relief. Time to get a saw.

I wrote this just now because I—wanted to write a twabble—and I like em dashes, and relativity. And relationships are so much about perception. It's relative.


She says I move slowly—she's slower! She says I'm heavier—she's heavier! I'm drifting away? She's the only one moving!

and I wrote this one too


What if I'm severely mentally disabled and no one ever tells I am? What if the whole world around me is in my confined mind?

Disorientation.

"Who's there? I can't see; it's dark," he begged. He found rough tree bark. He leaned to rest against it, but, it was gone.

"Celebrity Chef"

The celebrity chef opened a new restaurant. I found the George Clooney a bit stringy, but the Katie Perry was delicious.

The journey was quieter than usual, somewhat peaceful. Then I suddenly realised, I didn't remember leaving the house!

While you guys were sleeping I wrote these two twabbles. You stopped breathing for like four seconds.


_
He was found hanging from a rope in the church steeple. Questions were asked, only the bells tolled.

_
She was found stumbling down the road. Her shoes were on the wrong feet. All she said was, “I hurt.”


Tolled! get it? It's a homonym!

Sorry, but length Nazi says neither of those are twabbles; they are way too short. See the twabble sizer tool.

You know something Syd, you're right. I ah . . . eh hem . . . counted the spaces.
And something else, I'm tired of this Nazi oppression! And uh, I say, that ah, I just made a new short story form! A Crabble! I wrote a Crabble! It's a one hundred character story (counting spaces). You guys can write one too if you want, I won't charge you.

Incidentally, unrelated to my earlier Crabbles, I wrote these two Twabbles:

_
He was found dead hanging from a rope in the church steeple. Questions were asked,no one spoke up, only the bells tolled.

_
Went missing at 25, she was found stumbling down the road, 17. Her shoes were on the wrong feet. All she said was, “I hurt.”

Ya know, invisibleoroverlooked tangerine, I am tempted by your haltering parry to ask if it would be nitpicky to note that, now that you have the count right, you have the grammar wrong, appending two sentences as clauses, with commas.

It isn't like you'd have to do anything more than change the commas to periods and capitalize a couple of letters...

But wait! Yes, indeed, it is just like that.
