Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 83 + Other Stuff

#writemotivationI can’t believe it’s already time for another #writemotivation update – it seems like this past week FLEW by. As I predicted in last week’s update, I spent much of the week completely immersed in WriteOnCon. They do a truly excellent job putting it together, so there were a ton of wonderful posts and vlogs, and now my brain is pretty much mush. And since I put my query and writing samples out on the forums for feedback, I spent a lot of time paying it forward by critiquing others. If you missed WriteOnCon, they keep the information up all year, so you can browse at your leisure rather than gorging like I did.
 
So with all that happening, did I actually accomplish anything on my WIP? Fortunately, the answer is yes! I revised two more chapters. I'm still not setting the world on fire with my speed, but since one of the chapters ended up needing to be almost completely rewritten, I’m pleased with my progress. I hope all the other #writemotivation folks are making steady progress!
 
15 Minute Tweet TalesAnd that brings us to my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for this past week. On the first two days, I unintentionally mentioned Facebook in both stories, so I decided to incorporate Facebook in all my tales this week. I remembered on the third day, but then completely spaced on the fourth day, so that idea pretty much fizzled out. Hope you enjoy them anyway! 
 
8/14 - She gives Tim detention for his rabelaisian test answers, but she's eager to post it on Facebook: it's so funny it'll surely go viral.
 
8/15 - Chocolate, ice cream, hot bath - nothing breaks the anhedonia gripping Amy since the pic of her boyfriend kissing Max popped up on FB.
 
8/16 - Posting pics of his abs from 20 years ago, telling plain high school girls they're beautiful: Facebook's the perfect place for his venery.
 
8/17 - He cries every day because classmates torment him. His mom gives him cookies as a roborant, not realizing they tease him for being fat.
 
8/18 - Searching the pockets of plague victims, he hopes his periapt works: the stench from a pouch of his own filth should chase away disease.
 
8/19 - The jongleur wasn't afraid to sing about the king's love of playing with dolls, but now his jester bells are jingling from balls.
 
8/20 - He thinks the symbols on the vase are enchorial to Egypt, but the linguist expert says they're fake - she then sells it for a fortune.
 
How did you do with your #writemotivation goals this week? 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 or #15tt words?

I love the word jongleur.

My brains sometimes feel like mush after a mental workout of writing and critiquing.

You had a word the other day that I really liked and now I can't remember it and none of these words are ringing a bell. >.<

Congrats on your goals. You are getting there! Slowly but surely.

Awesome you got writing done last week with WriteOnCon. It inspired me to open my manuscript for a few days last week and it felt so good. It's sadly been awhile.

These words are like aliens from another planet... strange looking & strange-sounding. LOL
Though I tried to work out one or two from the context, like anhedonia and venery.

Medeia - I think jongleus was my favorite word of the week, too.

Patricia - Oops! Hopefully the word will come back to you. And thanks!

Natalie - Yeah, even though WriteOnCon took up a lot of time, it really stoked my inspiration. Glad you got some writing done, too!

Michelle - They really are kind of alien! :-)

You know hon, speed isn't everything. Slow and steady means much better quality. So I think you're doing fantastic on your goals. <3

I sure hope slow and steady means better quality - it's all I have going for me! :-)
