Drabble Day – Name

I am currently in Swaziland and so I’m attempting to make this blog post on my phone. Fingers crossed!

The Drabble Day Challenge is a weekly challenge hosted by http://thewriteaholicblog.wordpress.com/ and it involves writing a Drabble (a short story of 100 words, plus or minus 5) based around a particular prompt. This week’s prompt was “Name”. It made me think of how young children always want to name things, that led me to an A To Z Book, which of course (in my twisted mind) led to the following…


A is for Alien
B is for Battle
C is for Carnage
D is for Death
E is for Expedition
F is for Firestorm
G is for Ghost-ship
H is for Haven
I is for Invasion
J is for Jump Troops
K is for Killzone
M is for Mission Accomplished!
N is for New Earth
O is for Order
P is for Patriarch
Q is for Quisling
R is for Rebellion
S is for Soldier
T is for Trust
U is for Uniform
V is for Victory
W is for Watchfulness
X is for Xenophobia
Y is for Young Patriot
Z is for Zealot

    You could make a story with just those words. Like an alphabet word association story. Cool!
