    Will have a think.

    Out of interest how do we know that Willow and Xander never celebrated their 20th Birthday's on the show? Thought it was only Buffy out of the main characters whose age they kept tabs on.

    My two started out north of 150 words each......took me a while to trim out all the unnecessary words & change the wording to shorten it.....
    In the end I got them down to 104 and 101 words, but that was as low as I could go & still keep the meaning.
    I typed them out on Notepad & kept going back to them until I was happy with them.......It was the first time I had tried a drabble so it was all new to me!
    Go on, give it a go....I found it quite an interesting challenge.....especially as I can't seem to even keep my posts under 100 words :)

    nightshade,
    so what were the official number of words acceptable? 90, 100 or 110? As you stated this was a 100 word drabble and if memory serves correctly it you said you'd accept 10 words either way. So does that mean that the only drabbles you'd accept are 90, 100 or 110 words exactly.
