Tweet Tales Tuesday Week 81
August 6, 2013
15 Minute Tweet TalesThe words I present each day for #15tt are basically random – I just go down the line of what’s printed in the Rare Words book – so it’s always fun when there are moments of synchronicity. I took Latin in high school and college, so it’s possible I used to know that cervidae means deer, but it’s not one of those words that stuck with me, but then I recently read The Madman’s Daughter by Megan Shepherd in which cervidae=deer comes up as a plot point, so it was kind of swirling in my brain. Then I wrote a Read-n-Feed blog post about Megan’s book and on the very day I posted it on my blog, the #15tt word was cervine! The Twilight Zone theme song definitely played in my head when I saw it in the Rare Words book – what a strange coincidence! 
 
Anyway, there’s still time to enter my giveaway of a signed copy of The Madman’s Daughter, so click here to enter.
 
And now here are my 15 Minute Tweet Tales for the week:
 
7/31 – Neighbors mock the eremitic woman, but she guards a portal in her house that emits lights and sounds sent by beings trying to enslave us.
 
8/1 – He serves her cervine heart, but she pushes it away in disgust. "It must be the heart of my husband's daughter." He stabs hers instead.
 
8/2 – She quickly uncovers a venal judge. They find him in his courtroom, eyeballs plucked out. She hopes the other judges get her warning.
 
8/3 – Whimpering, the cub stumbled down the scree but couldn't catch the hunters dragging off his mother's body. He's alone and she's a rug.
 
8/4 – The nematoid mass would've sent most girls squealing, but she poked at the wriggling horde unaware she'd one day use them to cure cancer.
 
8/5 – She hopes the two metopic bumps on her son are bug bites, but when they keep growing, she drowns him. She always said his dad was the devil.
 
8/6 – She runs a finger up his thigh, promising drugs and sex; it's a Barmecide proposition to lure him to a hotel room to harvest his organs.
 
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?
