    I'm sorry to say this but yes, please look here for further information.

    Happy drabbling!

    Monthly

    Hi!

    For the March/April Monthly, do we submit the one-shot to its appropriate, 'normal' category or to contest submissions? Because when I go to contest submissions, I don't see something specific to this challenge.

    Thanks!

    It goes into whatever normal cat it fits best in, there's no special one for this challenge!

    In the rules for the March/April monthly, it says that we can submit 3 snippets of 50-200 words. But how many drabbles may we submit about the same world? If we don't do some of the other options, may we submit more than one?

    I've been wondering why the drabbles here are 500 words?

    The true definition of a drabble is a work of exactly 100 words as per its origins at the Birmingham University in the 80s - its almost always 100 words in drabble contests elsewhere.

    Surely 500 words falls more into the category of shortfic or flashfic?

    Hello LBC

    I am very well aware of this definition. XD Particularly due my participation in other communities not on MNFF.

    For all purposes, the 500 word limit was set up before the Ebil One was in charge of the weeklies. However, I'm going to quote the Wiki page on drabbles here: "The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space"

    I'm going to assume that this loose definition was used so that authors could create a sort of plot into their entries. Even though, they should be technically called ficlets instead. XD

    However, in a round-robin [which we have every couple of months], and in the QWC, the Ebil One and MQ enforce the true definition of a drabble.

    Either way, if this is an issue, MQ and the Ebil One will be more than happy to discuss it but as you may know - word definitions evolve in time -shrugs-

    I hope this answered your question - if you have any more concerns feel free to PM me or MQ

    Hello,

    I was wondering when the next Most Helpful User Award would be announced?

    Thanks for working so hard to give us this wonderful place to drabble and write.

    -squishes Sammy for reminding me to be a good Barmaid-

    I'll be locking it shortly, dear. XD
    And for the record, late entries aren't judged; hence, the deadline. =]

    And you're not a bother.

    Hey Haylee!
    MQ and I are on it. We're just having a bit of a hard time deciding. XD
    It should be posted within the week.
