Drabble Dare Results and New Schedule

We swooned collectively when Jason posted this painting of a swashbuckling pirate-


It took us a couple of weeks to stop swooning long enough to judge the results. But we finally managed.


So without further ado, we present the winner of Drabble Dare # 10-





Congratulations, Rekha. For winning Drabble Dare # 10, you earn a standing ovation and permanent bragging rights!!!


Here's Rekha's winning entry-
He surveyed the scene before him… the men in plume bravely waging a hopeless battle, muttered darkly, “Spanish Armada, more like foolish Armada’. He grinned savagely as limbs flew, blood spluttered everywhere, inhuman anguished cries were heard.
Blackbeard waited for the exact moment, his signature stroke to be unleashed... the young man beside him muttered ” slipping”…
He turned a blank eye, with gymnastic perfection somersaulted over the railing …
The opponent caught unaware, a swift plunge, the victory complete. “Hold on, your time will come” Alec Guinness to Errol Flynn with twinkling eyes and grin, as the curtains fell, audience clapped.


And now for something completely different.




As most of you who have been following this blog would be aware, we are tweaking the schedule slightly. Starting November, this is the schedule we would be following -

  • Reading Monday - when we ramble about books, characters, lists and plots
  • Topical Tuesday - when we write about something topical, or something we feel very passionately about
  • Writing Wednesday - which also includes motivation
  • Delusional Thursday - we met on a fan-fic forum - need I say more?
  • Who am I Friday - when we talk about our world, our interests and our passions

After going through your suggestions regarding the Drabble Dare, we have decided to post an image on the first Sunday of the month, and announce the results on the last Saturday of the month. Watch this space for a new image on November 7, 2010.

Welcome to the Drabble bandwagon, Rekha. But beware, it is addictive.
