Preconceived notions about people are unkind. Even an admiring compliment can hurt. Mostly, though, I have a thing for elf-y girls.

I don't want to brag, but I've been a human with a condition for a long time now.

My creative genius usually comes in inopportune, spastic spurts. Unfortunately for you it has manifested itself, for the moment, in twabbles. Should I limit myself to a couple posts a week? Some things will never come clear.

This is an excerpt from the unofficial biography of The Drabblecast. I'm not even kidding:

"Mom, I'm writing a twabble," he called.
"Norman, stop that right now! Meet a real girl!"
"Mom, it's fiction."
"I Know—"

Don't need to (unless it gets obnoxious). Putting a bunch of twabbles in one post helps.
Lots of folks have posted in this thread like maniacs only to burn out after a few days or weeks.

;) Yeah, this is like that old legend about the blonde who cracked open a VHS cassette so she could put the film on her reel-to-reel projector.

I guess there isn't a lot of space for place or setting in a twabble, unless you use a place setting. Thus spork Zarathustra. (Okay, I'm definitely out of fork puns.)

I don't usually like other people's twabbles, but I do love things that lie in wait. Tangerine Approved!

Sweetheart, maybe it's just the sodium pentathol talking, but since you ask: why yes, that dress does make you look fat.

I asked, God what's the meaning of life?

God said, do you play chess?

I said yes.

Yup - it's just a question of who's pushing the pieces.

I totally stole this from Ask Me Another on NPR
I also want to make a general statement to everyone about all of my writing, present and future: I don't make mistakes—I hide Easter eggs.

Welcome to the DC forums, Mr. President.
Did you hide eggs, or did you lay them?
