Yesterday I wrote a little tweetstorm about writing and revision and how essays work and how you reach the “good stuff” in a manuscript. Here is the link to it.
In what for me is something of an experimental form — though it’s common practice for some writers, perhaps — I decided to write a very short story on Twitter in a series of linked tweets. I let people be aware of it over on Facebook, and a compilation of said tweets was requested so it would be easier to follow. So here it is.
#FantasyVacations #1: He said, “I’m going to say this only once. Wolves are never safe to play with. Never.”
Not sure I’m buying it, though.

#FantasyVacations #2: …pretend I’m living in a Soft Surroundings catalog.
His response: “Apparently their marketing works. No caftans.”
#FantasyVacation #3: So how about this? Let’s go someplace and live in a castle for a week. Drink tea. Have fancy dinners. Pretend I’m…
His response: “Um, servants. Who are you?”
#FantasyVacation #4: How about the Scottish Highlands?
His response: “No.”
Iceland? Him: “No.”
France? “The fastest nope that ever noped.”
#FantasyVacation #5: The wolves aren’t sounding so bad anymore, are they?
His response: *facepalm*
He’s so cute. 🙂
If you want to see more flash fiction like this in the future, but in Twitter-realtime (whatever that might mean), go on over there and follow me; my handle is @AngeliqueJamail. I don’t send out a lot of tweets, usually, so your feed won’t get flooded if you pile on.
