Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 28 + #writemotivation

15 Minute Tweet TalesNow that I’ve fully recovered from The Crud, I was finally able to make some real progress this week.  I even had an INSANE night Saturday because I got on a roll and decided not to sleep and just rewrote for fifteen straight hours.  I took snack and stretch breaks, but it was pretty crazy intense.  I didn’t make up for the time I lost being sick, but I’m really happy with the quality of what I’ve done, even if the quantity is not where I’d planned.  Here’s hoping all the #writemotivation folks are super productive this last week of July!

As for the 15 Minute Tweet Tales, I thought I’d try something new this week.  In the comments for previous #15tt posts, a few people have mentioned looking up the words, and since I don’t want it to be a hassle for people to understand the tweet tales, I’m going to link the words to their definitions.  Let me know if you prefer having the definitions just a click away.  
 
7/18 - Her adamant belief in signs saved her from making decisions: that fatidic fascination even made her think her dog's farts had meaning.
 
7/19 - A traffic jam, a flat tire, pulled over for speeding: yet the bride maintained the Panglossian belief she'd make it to her wedding.
 
7/20 - Lea used bacon as a cumshaw to get the dog on the couch with his head on her knee. Those brief moments made her feel someone loved her.
 
7/21 - He cheats on her. She cheats on him. They break up and then reconcile. A cycle of lust and distrust that oddly makes them both happy.
 
7/22 – They believed the brave new world of genetic manipulation would cure society’s ills, but it put them on the fast-track to extinction.
 
7/23 - Behind in the polls, he impugns the trait giving his opponent the edge: he claims she stuffs her bra. He will be 6th grade president!
 
7/24 - The detective was revered for his legerity, but this suspect was so hot, the blood rushed from his brain and he missed a crucial clue.
 
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?

YAY for getting over the crud, but dag how you "recover"!! Better be careful that doesn't put you in a relapse! :) Congrats on the progress though! :D

That was a fantastic stint you pulled. I had to cheer you on. Write until you drop when you're on a roll :D

I'm so glad you're feeling better. Here's to an awesome July!

Glad that you're fully recovered!
Fifteen hours of non-stop writing - wow! That's great going!! And I'd choose writing quality over quantity any day...
I had a good laugh at the mention of "farting dog"... thanks for providing the links to the words. It saves me looking up the meanings.

I would call that a world champion recovery. I love it when you can really sink into a project.

I think the "impugn" tweet is my favourite. Mostly because of the story, but partly because I love saying (and typing) "impugn".

I'm glad you're feeling better and writing.

I only clicked on two of the definitions. Great sentences.

Thanks everyone!  I think that marathon session drained my creativity for a few days, but I feel I might be gearing up for another one!
