Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 32 + Other Stuff

15 Minute Tweet TalesI hope everyone learned a ton at WriteOnCon and made new writer friends in the forums.  I absorbed so much information I feared my brain was going to melt out of my ears.  If you couldn’t attend “live,” everything will remain up on the site until the next conference, so be sure to check it out when you have a chance.  

In other news: while I’m going to do a longer post about it later, I did want to let everyone know there’s excitement happening at the website for my short film Saying Goodbye.  Click here to see the big announcement.

Meanwhile, here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the past week:
 
8/15 – A chittering obloquy rains from the trees as Ben puts the new anti-squirrel device on his bird feeder. They beat it within 10 minutes.
 
8/16 – Under the guise of visiting Nana, he searched her house until he found a Golconda - her jewelry. Turns out she’d hidden glass decoys.
 
8/17 - Using hypnotherapy, the alienist plants suggestions for patients to randomly bark to entertain him while they whine about their moms.
 
8/18 - Cheers erupt as the wood beneath the screaming woman deflagrates. If it doesn't rain tomorrow, another 'witch' will be burned.
 
8/19 – He felt Town Drunk was a misnomer: he viewed himself as the Town Wise Man, willing to share his sage advice in exchange for a drink.
 
8/20 – Playing the lickerish womanizer ate at Jim’s soul, but his mom would rather die than have anyone in the community suspect he was gay.
 
8/21 – He explained the garner of weapons in his basement was preparation for the zombie apocalypse. They laughed at him. They regretted it.
 
The word-a-day calendar only gave the definition for the noun version of garner, not the verb, so I linked to a different online dictionary to provide the noun definition.
 
Did you participate in WriteOnCon?  Play along with #15tt 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?

I'll check out the film. :)

I'll read the WriteOnCon posts later. I've been missing out on all of it.

obloquy? Golconda? Some totally obscure words... and some I can guess at... maybe...
Your "short film excitement" sounds... well... super-duper-exciting (I'll have to follow the link to check it out the announcement)
Wow! And WriteOnCon? Lots of things to check out here at your site, Jocelyn! Thank you!
