Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 26 + #writemotivation

15 Minute Tweet TalesJust a quick #writemotivation update for the week before my roundup of tweet tales.  I got off to a slow start because of Fourth of July celebrations drawn out over several days due to its awkward placement in the middle of the week. And then over the weekend I seemed to have acquired The Crud.  At least I feel like crud.  Lots of coughing and staring glassily into space breathing through my mouth.  And whining.  Lots and lots of whining.  I did manage to rewrite eleven pages, which is well short of my three pages per day goal, but I’m thinking I’ll attack this NaNo style and make up for the shortfalls at the end of the month.  Hope everyone else is making excellent progress on their goals!

And now for the 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week:
 
7/4 - He felt streaking through town was a symbolic way to celebrate independence, but apparently public nudity was not an inalienable right.
 
7/5 - All the girls crushed on Ty's puckish personality; then the vampire craze swept school, and he was ignored in favor of brooding boys.
 
7/6 - A lifelong cineast, she finally filmed her own, but hid it due to fear. When she died, her son released it & was proclaimed a genius.
 
7/7 - To secure his grandma's hereditament, he visited every Sunday, yet his cousin snatched it by visiting 1x a month & bringing chocolate.
 
7/8 – The proper position of the toilet seat had become such a nasty Dunkirk that he started using the guest bathroom to save the marriage.
 
7/9 – Incisive men turned her on; meanwhile, her husband was trying to decide if the hotel receipt he’d found meant she was cheating on him.
 
7/10 – Filial loyalty kept her from reporting her father’s midnight digging, but when her best friend disappeared, she had to take action.
 
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?

The crud is horrible - I know because I've had the zombie virus for so long, it's a part of me lol <3 Hope you get better soon hon.

Also, I think you're doing great with your goals for having been sick, and I always love seeing your tweet tales :D

Hey, the crud is a legitimate excuse! Seriously, I'm impressed you got all that done considering. You'll get back on track when you feel better. Good luck with the rest of the month and I hope you feel better soon.

The only thing worse than the crud, is having it in the middle of the summertime. I'm very fond of your inalienable tale, and would love to know more about your Filial and think you should turn into a short story.

Get well soon. I was feeling stuffy last week. It always feels a bit strange when I get sick over the summer, but it happens.

Great sentences, especially the ones for puckish and filial.

Thanks, everyone!  I'm just now starting to feel well enough to rejoin society.
