Drabbles benefit both readers and writers. The world moves so fast and it’s not always easy to fit in reading time. Reading and digesting a 100-word story, though, is doable - on the train, bus, toilet… but wash your hands afterwards.
This flash fiction is much trickier than it looks, its author having to encapsulate a tale in such a short space. You are forced to make every word count, phrase things so that you wring the maximum amount of emotion and surprise from as few words as possible. Put simply, it gets to the bone of what good writing is.
