Um, More Twitter

So I got really carried away with the Twittery and I decided I actually rather like the idea of writing little short things, and having the shortness imposed by a 140 character limit.

And I so am.

But it seemed confusing trying to work out which ongoing story is which, when I’m doing a longer poem and a longer story too, and hashtags use up the character limit, so blah, anyways, I made seperate accounts for each thing.

Um, several seperate accounts.


@TessTheWriter is the main one, like for blog updates or whatever.

@AChickLitNovel is a twitternovel that’ll probably take forever to finish, but will eventually.  Jen takes her new girlfriend Mik to meet her daugher and stuff happens.  Probably without long sentences, though.  An archive of this is here.

@TessThePoet is for an ongoing twitter poem thingy, so like an epic poem from days of old, except in very short verses.  And about falling in love.  And possibly dirty, depending how twitter feel about that which I don’t know. So maybe not really like an epic poem from days of old.  An archive of this is here.

@TessMackenize is for 140-character flash fiction stories as I happen to think of them.  These probably don’t need an archive, since there’s nothing else on that account they’re self-contained.

Also, there’s weirdo poems I’ve been putting up on the main @TessTheWriter account, but those also go on Wattpad inside Sappho Made Me Do It, but there’s an archive page for these here too.

So there you go!

But now I’m thinking it’s probably actually easier to read these here anyway.  Because the short poems and flash fiction are okay, but it’s just weird reading longer things back to front.  And also, it’ll take ages to get even a page of this done doing it a sentence at a time, basically, so actually, maybe just ignore this for a year and then there’ll be something worth reading!

  1. I think it’s a great format for readers who are on the go (maybe reading on their phone, for example) and don’t have time for a full-length story. Instead they read a little every day.

    I think it also gives your sentences a good workout. You achieve better word economy when you’re limited to 140 characters. :)

    • Thank you! And yep with the word economy! And the little each day, I hadn’t thought about it, but that maybe makes it harder for people to remember what’s going on? Perhaps? I hadn’t thought of it was all…

      Um, and also thank you for following all the other stuff on twitter, I’ll do it back from the other accounts, I just need to log out and back in to do that, which takes ages, but I will!
