Wow! I can't believe I made it through an entire month of writing 15 Minute Tweet Tales without skipping a single day. I’m actually very proud of myself, since that means I’ve done something writing related every day of 2012 - that’s a pretty big deal for a procrastinator like me.
Isn’t it supposed to take something like a month for an action to become a habit? My friend Google tells me that both 21 and 28 days are the supposed magic number. Either way, I’ve hit the milestone, and that’s pretty exciting. Writing the tweet tales has become part of my routine; and while some days are easier than others, and some words are more fun to write about, it’s hard to imagine missing a day.
Here are the tweet tales for the last week of January:
1/25 – Her boyfriends were a mélange of ethnicities and personalities - eHarmony imploded trying to find her type. She met Sarah on her own.
1/26 – The vox populi was that her husband was a monster, so when the media exposed the crime, she was able to slip away with all the money.
1/27 – Trash can chaos. 3 innocent looking dogs. Amy played hawkshaw by sniffing their snouts. No surprise when Trouble had garbage breath.
1/28 – Before killing his wife, he consulted his mistress – a true Philadelphia lawyer notorious for keeping vile criminals out of jail.
1/29 – Tired of being a nerdy boffin, he hit the gym. Soon the women at work were drooling over him, but he only wanted his cube mate, Jim.
1/30 – She swore she’d only eat a salad, but the lasagna at the trattoria was too tempting. A trip to the toilet & a mint fixed everything.
1/31 – His wife’s eidetic memory drove him crazy, but when he needed to dump her body, it would have been useful for finding the car keys.
The toughest word this week was Philadelphia lawyer – soooo boring and soooo many characters. But I’ve always been a fan of the word mélange, so that was fun.
Play along and craft 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.
