Drabble Dare Poll Results



We asked!
You answered!
We analyzed!

And here is what we've come up with (or thereabouts... the reliability of my reporting has periodically been questioned, as Misattributing IS my superpower)...


Keep or Toss? KEEP!

Like or Not? LIKE!

(so those are very good news)

As to frequency... responses varied, but in conjunction as to WHY you sometimes didn't participate (the time involved, the TIMING involved, sometimes lack of inspirationality of the image...) But it just seemed wiser to reduce frequency. What we plan is a monthly challenge with some in-between reminders, so people who missed the ONE day, get another chance if they want it (or can do it later if a certain week is bad) and then between we'll talk about some of our other projects, maybe give you some samples of our various projects...



So, as of now...

We will post a NEW IMAGE the first Sunday of each month, then the LAST SATURDAY, post results (which are subject to whim and whimsy, because that is how we roll... or not... maybe it is just that we haven't yet clarified how that will go exactly...)

This particular image is STILL in effect... (because we've been under review as to how this would go) and you still have until next Thursday to write a pirating drabble...


At least one Sunday between we will REPOST and REMIND. But we will also give some prods mid week, as we think weekend readership is lower and weekday readers may just not know what all the fuss is about...

And so it has been declared! (you may get naked now! Or... curtsey now! Or eat lunch now!) Erm. Or not. (but we do hope you'll join us in a drabble now and again...)

I'm happy we are keeping it. I know for some people it's really hard to write a story in 100 words. It was really hard for me at first too. But fortunately, I kept trying. I often use many of my own life experiences. It's just easier to write what I know.

Damn, I obviously missed something important while I was in Limbo land (well really I was in Europe with random hotel internet and spent my time sightseeing)
I've loved this drabble dare thing, even though I didn't participate much. I like seeing how other people work with the paintings. I've felt so cut off from the fun.
I was even trying to write drabbles on napkins while I was away. It's a challenge. I'm pleased you're going to keep it.
