100 Word Stories

If your English teachers are looking for ideas to prompt/inspire student creative writing, the 100 Word Stories blog has a new inspiration/word/phrase every week day.

The challenge is to write a story in just 100 words, no more, no less (a form of writing which came out of the world of sci-fi fanfic, according to some accounts I've read). This is known as a Drabble.

Long enough to need thought, small enough to be not only workable, but less intimidating too. Definite potential for the classroom.

And maybe good ones to be 'published' in a book or intranet/online form too, for other students to read?
