Each Time She Passed By, Alone, She Was Reminded

Today’s random word is: blast

It was three years since the move. Marianna knew she had to do something if she ever wanted to form friendships.

She’d been writing drabbles on Medium for almost a year now, and knew children could love writing them, as she did.

Before moving, she had volunteered at her local school, teaching English to children afraid to put pen to paper.

Drabbles would have been fun.

Cutting her walk short, she walked through the door. Immediately she heard the whisper.

“Please”, he cried, “do you have a key? This is the box for autistic children. I want to go home.”

If you’re not already on board with writing drabbles, (short, 100-word stories, no more, no less,) d yourself a favour. Get stuck in! They are a lot of fun to write, but also serve as a lesson in tight writing, given the 100-word constraint.
