Drabble Competition Runner Up

To celebrate our third birthday at the beginning of July, the Working Title Blog held a drabble writing competition.

As it is our third birthday completion we have three runners up! This one is from Jerald Larson.

“You’ve arrived!” Sir enthused, upon landing the big account. “Now it’s time to break the mould!”

Time, alas, that elusive fiend: so much to prove, so no time for regret. Break the mould I did, and sod the consequences!

That mould, I soon found, protects the uncultivated; what blobbed without its walls was a babbling, egotistical doughy mess.

But still, the orders came. Awards, clients, launches, reputation, gone in a flash: everyone loved the new me…

…except me. Mirrors betrayed the booze, parties, pressure, until…

…I broke.

My resignation postscript declared: “You can’t have your cake and eat it. Sir.”

  1. Many thanks for publishing my Drabble.

    More prompts, please! It’s good to step out of the comfort zone.

    Really appreciated this opporunity! And well done to the winner and other runners-up – sterling efforts, all!
