With the Blogging from A to Z challenge happening all month, I wasn’t sure what to do about posting my weekly 15 Minute Tweet Tales roundup. My agenda designated Tuesday for writing tips, so the tweet tales didn’t fit that theme, nor did they fit in with the daily letters. I could have just added them to the end of my tip post, but that would have made it even longer. And I thought about doing two posts on Tuesday, but that seemed excessive. Since the A to Z challenge gives the bloggers Sunday off for good behavior, I’ve decided to use Sundays for the tweet tales this month. Because I didn’t post on Tuesday, there are more tweets than usual this time:
3/28 – Who’d have guessed rescuing animals would be her hamartia? But the injured wolf didn’t appreciate being reprimanded with a newspaper.
3/29 – They got a kick out of his waggish pranks until the night 1 went horribly wrong. 2 lives destroyed–1 in jail, the other in the ground.
3/30 – The poetaster considered himself a lyrical genius with gems like: Roses, how they smell so sweet/But not as great as this candy treat.
3/31 – Her expression remained sanguine as a sanguine flood swept the kitchen floor. She’d never be suspected of brutally murdering her dad.
4/1 – Frank is determined to pull off the ultimate April Fools’ prank so his friends will forever use antonomasia by calling him The Joker.
4/2 – Mocked by the judges for his looks despite his stellar voice, the disaffected contestant took an actual dump on stage. Reality indeed.
4/3 – Astrid always knew she’d be a star. But it was her fall off stage, not her stellar voice, which turned her into a YouTube sensation.
4/4 – As she searched the dumpster for food, she remembered her pridian life before the crash when she was blind to people living this way.
4/5 – I hoick the dog’s leash to keep him from licking his owner’s blood. I lead away my new pet, knowing I’ll finally win at Westminster.
4/6 – Mary knew how people would die, but only 30 seconds before it happened, making her clairvoyant abilities more a tragedy than a gift.
4/7 – The alien watched reality TV to form a pidgin before 1st contact, but the humans didn’t respond well to “I’m not here to make friends.”
4/8 - Tim threw his bowl at the wall & the oatmeal began to flocculate on the floor. The dog thought it was great. The dad missed the mom.
In reading back over the tweet tales, I discovered two things. One, I used the word ‘stellar’ on 4/2, which was the day before ‘stellar’ actually ended up being the word of the day. Weird!! *cue Twilight Zone music* Two, on 4/5 it appears that while trying to shrink and juggle words to get it under 140 characters, I accidentally left out a word when I tweeted it. I’ve fixed it for the blog post.
If you celebrate Easter, I hope you’re having a very happy one. This is a picture of my brother, sister, and me last night. Yes, we are dying eggs. Yes, we are in our pajamas. Yes, we are all in our thirties. And, yes, we will be hiding them today!!
And if Easter isn’t your thing, I hope you’re having a relaxing/productive Sunday (whichever you prefer).
Play along and write tweet tales for the above words. If you’re willing to share, post them on twitter with the hashtag #15tt or add them below in the comments because I’d love to read them. Any thoughts about this week's tweet tales?
And don't forget, I'm having a contest here. Guess the most dog breeds correctly and win a prize.
