PSA: challenge100

Contained below: Drabble writing group, mysterious pineapple


For a while now, both on LJ and off, I've been hearing some grumping about current drabble-writing communities. If you're looking for a new or an additional one, challenge100 seems like a nice group. It's still small enough (under 100 users) not to be spammy, but more importantly: all their challenges are interesting and seem well thought out.

challenge100 is open to any fandom, but it looks like HP is getting the lion's share of attention (so you HP-only folks shouldn't be uncomfortable there).

I've been really slacking off on writing, so I've joined up there myself and intend to try to write on a weekly basis. (Hey, it's just a drabble, right? Only 100 words?) I'm a little nervous about writing for the new fandoms I've entered (eek! I don't know the characters well enough to write for them! It took me months of reading and lurking before I'd write about even the most minor of HP characters!), but I'm going to give it a try.


I think pineapple isn't really a fruit. I don't believe it's really a food or even of this Earth. Sound far-fetched? It's not! Pineapple is the sweetest thing I have ever tasted. It's tons sweeter than chocolate or cookies or candy or anything else... so how does it have only ~80 calories a cup? If you had a cup of sugar or a cup of chocolate or a cup of anything else not nearly as sweet as it, it'd be a lot more than 80 calories!

If only it didn't make my mouth and lips burn after eating it, I'd eat nothing but pineapple for the rest of my life. Mmm. Yay, my yummy alien fruit!
