Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 167
April 7, 2015
15 Minute Tweet TalesI’m spending the rest of the week at a writing retreat with my critique group. There is no internet where we’re staying. I’ll either get a TON of writing done or I’ll spend the whole time curled up in a ball shaking with withdrawal. At this point I can see it going either way. Wish me luck!!
 
And now here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week:
 
4/1 – His roommate practiced same song ad nauseam. You'd think he'd improve. Wrong. You'd think that'd make it justifiable homicide. Also wrong.
 
4/2 – Ruth told friend about sweet boychik next door often stopping by to chat. But Fay knew the house was empty; family moved out after son died.
 
4/3 – Saw street vendor selling fancy purse his wife wanted but thought "caveat emptor" & left. Too bad, it was real. Stolen but real. And cheap.
 
4/4 – When ripped jeans became de rigueur at school,she took scissors to her new jeans. Her mom took a belt to her backside. Too poor for fashion.
 
4/5 – He walks in with ersatz girlfriend,and I go over to prove she'll never replace me. But we hit it off,and she dumps our BF so we can be BFFs.
 
4/6 – Mom laughs at her makeover. "You look like a fat clown. Bet you think you're a femme fatale." Using knife, she shows Mom she literally does.
 
4/7 – Schools wrecked, social networks destroyed, teen girls in catatonic states – the götterdämmerung of One Direction disbanding was epic.
 
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 or #15tt words?
