As I suspected, I didn’t make much progress on my #writemotivation goals last week because of my trip to DC. I did manage two blog posts, which was a nice improvement; but no progress on the WIP, which is a bummer. The good news is I had a fabulous time on the trip with my siblings, the DC Shorts Film Festival was a wonderful experience, and we had a great reception to our film at its screening (I’ll be posting pictures and more details about that at the High Heels & Hoodoo blog later this week).
Since I wasn’t sure what my internet access was going to be while I was gone, I scheduled all the 15 Minute Tweet Tales words and my tales for last week in advance. I was a little nervous about it, but the scheduler worked, and the rest of the #15tt crew carried on without me, creating some fantastic tales. Even though mine were technically all written in one night, here they are for the week:
9/5 - How was she going to explain the grass stains from the links
to her mom? As his lips touched hers under the stars, she didn't care.
9/6 - Annie was bursting with patriotic pride when she joined the CIA, but the drudgery of questionable assignments has case-hardened
9/7 - A mermaid explores the flotsam
of a naval battle. A sailor calls for help. Instantly smitten, she drags him down in a watery embrace.
9/8 - When she asks what he wants to eat, he always says: I don't care. She soon realizes it's tantamount to saying: I don't care about you.
9/9 - Frank was obtuse
about most things, but he knew when a woman liked him; so he'd keep her chained in the basement 'til she admitted it.
9/10 - Bob the bluebird did not let his severe alopecia
stop him from happily singing, though the other birds tittered at his naked wings.
9/11 - Kim's crush got on the elevator, 5 seconds later it got stuck. She sang a mental paean
to the goddess of love for her perfect timing.
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?
