Would someone please tell me what "Drabble" is?

Also, regarding flash for Women's Weekly, I could not find submission guidelines on their website. Am I overlooking something?

Thanks!

A drabble is a 100 word story.

The Women's Weekly website doesnt have much on it.

The following is from this website (http://www.jbwb.co.uk/markets.html):-

Woman's Weekly is looking for warm, realistic short stories in two length categories: 2,000 words and 1,000 words. Serials are also required of between 2 and 6 instalments of around 4,000 words per instalment. Submit to: Gaynor Davies, Woman's Weekly, IPC Connect Ltd, King's Reach Tower, Stamford Street, London, SE1 9LS. Write for the latest Woman's Weekly Writers' Guidelines, enclosing a sae.

Whoever came up with the terms "dribble" and "drabble" was wasting time. There are already specific, and proper, terms for fiction of this length.

Old "Positive Vibe" just can't help spreading sunshine, lollipops and roses every where he goes.
