Drabble: Unwritten Stories


Not every story gets written.

Sometimes, life gets in the way (usually laziness rather than business), or the spark just dies (some ideas just can’t grow beyond a few lines). It’s sad, but not everyone can get their happily ever after.

If only these characters got the memo.

“Write me! Write me!” A young boy floats after her as she walks home.

“Get your writer to write you,” she mutters.

“But he’s writing someone else.”

“Maybe he’ll come back to you.”

But the boy is adamant that his storyline has been scrapped. After hours of enduring a temper tantrum only she can see, she gives in and writes him a story to feature in. Not too long (because she didn’t have the time) and no names (because she didn’t want to be sued).


The boy, holding his new car model, nodded enthusiastically in a way only kids could and disappeared with his rabbit friend.

Now, back to her own story.
