In which Paarfi discourses on the drabble

Work Text:

We would like to commend to our readers the form of story known as the drabble; a form which consists of neither more nor less than one hundred words. There are some authors who claim that no writer of any value would bother with such a short form; where, they say, is the room for eloquence? But the perceptive reader will realize that it is by the very act of constraining himself that the author achieves true freedom; the drabble in its simplicity encapsulates the very essence of wit and brevity (a topic on which we cannot say too much).
