Treat 3: Guest blog a frabble! A wha—what?

A frabble is a tiny fable written in the style of a drabble, a complete story using 100 words. I use mainly animal characters in my frabbles, but nearly anything can be humanized. Think flowers, toys, books… The possibilities are endless.

If you want to guest blog a frabble, send your completed frabble to chess@chessdesalls.com. I post frabbles on my flash fiction blog on Frabble Fridays. Just remember to keep the language and subject matter clean, use only 100 words and have fun!

Where the truth remains hidden from the outside, the inside imprisons the hidden…said no privacy-minded teen ever.

Calla Winston’s mobile devices sit in a corner of her room, covered in dust. Weeks ago, she shared photos and laughs with her best online friend. Now, after having felt the sting of betrayal, she prefers being hidden and friendless. She equates privacy with security and technology with pain.

Then she meets Valcas, an otherworldly time traveler who traverses time and space with a pair of altered sunglasses. The Travel Glasses take Calla’s mistrust of technology to all new levels, but without them, she’ll never make it back home.
