Any Brave Souls Out There?

 I got my assignment for snape_ldws  Secret Santa drabble exchange this morning.  After seeing my assignment, I sat right down to write it, but now I'm in trouble.  

The word limit is 250.  I have 309.  AFTER editing.  Anyone care to help me pare this down?  I'm horrible with this.  :-P  Just let me know and I'll send it to you.

Think of it as prose haiku.

Two-hundred fifty
I cannot speak so briefly
I must use more words

LOL! You are *such* a poet, Lash!

I know what you mean . . . concision is not my strong point, by any means. I *really* admire people who are the masters of the 100 word drabble. I can't even get the fic started in that kind of space, let alone finish it. I keep trying, though! :-)

I know how you feel. There's those who drabble and those who babble.

I'm irretrievably in the latter category.

Also, I love Lash's haiku. And with the correct number of syllables, too.

If this comment reaches you: you're the greatest, Lash!

::ggg:: In my case, the babble is a torrent. :-P

Also, I love Lash's haiku
She's amazing, isn't she?
