I am excited that I have had my drabble published in the book “donkey drabbles”. The book is a fundraiser for the Donkey Sanctuary of Canada.
But what is a drabble, you might be asking yourself? It is “a short work of prose of one hundred words in length”. The founder of the donkey sanctuary, Sandra Pady, got the idea from the Wilfried Laurier University book of drabbles, published for Laurier’s centennial. I also have a drabble in that book. What can I say? I love to write really short stories.
Today was the book launch, an informal but fun occasion. I took my daughter as my guest, as she is the subject of my story called “magic”. I got to talk with founder, Sandra Pady. Stay tuned. There may be something else special writing wise coming out of that meeting.
My daughter and I are both long time supporters of the donkey sanctuary. We go there regularly, and we have also sponsored donkeys in the past few years. If you are ever in Guelph, I highly recommend a visit.
Right now the books are only available for purchase in their gift store. Hopefully you can soon buy one online. Update: They are now online. Click here to check it out.
Do you have any good news to share? I’d love to hear about it.
