I’m still a little ambivalent about Twitter but I think it has potential as a creative writing platform even if mostly it is just somewhere people spout yet more self indulgent rubbish to people who aren’t listening and don’t give a shit. The 140 character format means conciseness is key and like a haiku could perhaps lead to a pared down beauty.
The idea of miniature <140 character stories is something I intend to experiment with anyway, and will be doing so using the hashtag #tinystory. If you’re a twerp why not join me? I’m aiming to do one every day or so and to periodically ‘anthologise’ (hah!) them here for non-twerps to comment on.
This is my first, as a taster:
A green eye looks through the keyhole and widens in shock. Secrets swirl around and settle on her shoulders.
