I need to answer your question by first repeating this information and introduction to the concept of these mini-works.
A new dimension has been added to the weekly ‘prompt’ word challenge –
to produce a Drabble –
an exactly 100 word ‘flasher’ using the word as intelligently as possible.
(**NB: Title not included in word count)
This proves quite a task for some of us… but many of us truly enjoy this trumpet call invitation to search our imaginations and lift our pens… AGAIN! But why the strange title of my collection, you well may ask?
The dictionary meaning of ‘centuplicate’ as a noun, is – a number or quantity increased a hundredfold. And I thought… hmm—sounds about right for this particular process of bringing meaning to a single word – but absolutely only totalling the magical exact 100 words.
Here’s the exact wording from the dictionary—
[ verb sen-too-pli-keyt, -tyoo-; adjective, noun sen-too-pli-kit, -keyt, -tyoo- ]
verb (used with object), cen·tu·pli·cat·ed, cen·tu·pli·cat·ing.
to increase 100 times; centuple.
a number or quantity increased a hundredfold.
SO HERE WE GO…
