I started to tweet after getting inspired by a post by Chriz, on his Chronicwriter blog. To read that post, click here. Thanks to him for inspiring me.
I have fallen in love with twitter.com. I like the possibility of being able to micro-blog my thoughts, moment to moment. I like the challenge of delivering messages within 140 characters including spaces and punctuation marks. Above all, I like the possibility of delivering punch dialogues without getting punched on the nose.
Below are my attempts in story-telling on my twitter page. Have a read and tell me which micro story you like most.
1.He liked her. She pretended to like him. She also pretended to like someone else. Therefore, there was bloodshed.
2.The two brothers roared like lions tearing their enemies into pieces. Their mother cried, "My God! Those brand new pillows!"
3.His love for her was pure. He thought he cannot live without her. He made an earnest proposal. She showed off. He walked off.
4.A couple of love birds lived happily on a tree. A Hunter came by and aimed at them. The gun in his hand became a camera!
5.Two friends fought over a huge profit they made.They sued each other exhausting all the money until they again became friends.
6. "What's the use of me? I am not beautiful like you."- A Black fish. "If not for you, who would've told me that." - A Gold fish
7.A king listened to the story of Lord Buddha intently. He then told his Queen, "Never let our son sit under the Bodhi tree!"
8. He was a good boy. He slipped from the path of virtue. When he realised, regretted and returned he was a revered wise man.
9.He had a cigar. She had a match. They became friends. Eventually, fell in love and got married. She told him to quit smoking.
10.A guy liked to be my twitter friend. He followed me with my consent. He then threatened to unfollow if I don't follow him. LOL
