Hello Brigit's Flame,


Today I give you the final prompt in our February event - The shortest Tales for the Shortest Month.


"Ha!—would a madman have been so wise as this?"



The line comes from Poe's story The Tell-Tale Heart. I have included an audio performance of the full tale for your amusement.






For the month of February, we have been hosting a series of weekly mini contests for drabbles. If you are unfamiliar, a drabble is a short work of fiction of around one hundred words in length (not including the title). The purpose of the drabble is brevity, testing the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in a confined space.



For our purposes, we will require 100 words or less. You may submit up to three per week as long as they are all related to the theme, but not to each other. You do not need to single one out for competition, they are all eligible.



Your topic for mini contest 4 of 4 is "Ha!—would a madman have been so wise as this?", interpret it however you like.



Concurrent with the contest, we will have a workshop open for anyone who would like to practice their drabble prowess for a live audience before the deadline hits. Share your thoughts and difficulties with fellow embers and the mod team a dedicated drabble forum.




I hope you enjoy playing with this line and find some inspiration in it.




Submit your entries here - this phase ends Sunday, March 1st at 11:45pm EST
