About the 100-Word Count
We use WORDCOUNTER to verify your 100 words.
Just copy & paste your story into the text box and it will show your word count.
Along with the Drabble that wins by vote, I will be choosing my Top 5 stories to publish in an issue of the Fictionesse Magazine.
If you are the voted winner or the writer of a story I have selected for publication you will be contacted for permission to publish. You will also be able to edit your story before we go to print.
