I am a freelance writer, but in my leisure time I enjoy writing fan fiction and in particular Drabbles.
What is a Drabble?
In fan fiction, a Drabble is a story that is exactly 100 words long, not including the title. A Drabble allows the author to reveal only the essence of a story, like a haiku.
I specialize in Drabbles for:
- Star Trek: TOS
- The Avengers and The New Avengers
- Doctor Who (all Doctors)
- The Octonauts
- Ray Harryhausen movies
- Jonny Quest (the original series)
Here's an example Drabble from the Avengers: How Steed Met Mrs. Peel.
The Drabble I send you will be in this form - a printable PDF suitably illustrated and with a nice border. You can keep these in a binder and enjoy reading them again and again.
Below is the same Drabble, as a video. (You don't actually get the full impact of a Drabble unless you're reading it in print form. But doing them as videos is rather fun.)
Another example in print form.
And as a video.
Although my specialities are the topics mentioned above, I can write a Drabble distilling the essence of practically any TV series episode or movie you desire.
Here's a Doctor Who Drabble:
I DO NOT DO HORROR, TRUE CRIME OR EROTICA.

What Can You Use a Drabble For?
Most people enjoy Drabbles as a form of entertainment - heightening their enjoyment of a favorite scene or episode, or getting them to think about it in ways they never thought before.
But Drabbles don't have to be fiction!
Are you trying to increase your Scrabble vocabulary? I'll send you a series of Scrabble Drabbles - one a day for a year if you like, each one with two or more words for you to learn and remember easily because of the unique format of the Drabble.
Have kids that are interested in dinosaurs, or bugs, or volcanoes? I can send them, via email (or video if you prefer - see my list of rewards) a Drabble a day that will increase their knowledge and enthusiasm on the subject.
Here's an example of a Scrabble Drabble (using the public domain character of Sherlock Holmes as the vehicle to tell a story.)
Here's the video version. Again, it loses all impact of being exactly 100 words long...but these are fun to do.
What I Will Do For You
For $1, I will write a Drabble for any TV series or movie you desire (with the caveat mentioned above), and send it to you via email.
Or, for parents who want to interest their kids in dinosaurs, volcanoes, etc, I'll write a Drabble for you on their favorite topic.
For $5, I will customize the Drabble featuring any specific characters or scene you desire, and convey whatever emotion you wish.
For $10, I will write and customize a Brabble (that's a story that is exactly 200 words long).
For $25, I will create a video of the Drabble with appropriate music and images and send you an MP4. (These videos will be much better than the very quick ones I have done here.)
For $52, I will send you two Drabbles a week, and an MP4 video featuring all the words. (This is ideal for kids who want to get an email in the mail about volcanoes or dinosaurs or geography on a regular basis. I'll create a character that discusses their topic so the Drabbles have a compelling character for them to identify with.) (Note that non-fiction Drabbles to teach people vocabulary or history facts will be sent to everyone who orders that particular topic - they won't be unique to you.)
For $365, I will send you two, count 'em two Drabbles a day on your chosen subject. Ideal for people who want to increase their vocabulary with Scrabble Drabbles, or who want to increase their knowledge of any subject under the sun that interests them. I'll also include videos of all the words for extra enjoyment. (Note that non-fiction Drabbles to teach people vocabulary or history facts will be sent to everyone who orders that particular topic - they won't be unique to you.)
I publish my fan fiction (featuring mostly Star Trek: TOS, Doctor Who, and The Avengers) at fanfiction.net under the pseudonym Gale Force.
I'm particularly proud of these two stories:

I would love to help ignite or reignite your enjoyment of your favorite episodes or movie scenes.
Risks and challenges
I'm an excellent writer with a unique vision and sense of humor.
And for $1, what can you lose?
Why am I doing this? Well, I came across a successful campaign by an artist who would draw an image for a dollar. My own palette is words, and I am quite the artist with them.
So I thought, why not give it a try?Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
