Twittering Tales #26 – 18 April 2017
This is the weekly writing prompt challenge I’ve been taking part in lately, to write a story in 140 characters or less. I love seeing the huge variety in everyone’s different responses!
About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a prompt, and your mission, if you choose to play along, is to tell a story based on that prompt in 140 characters or less.
If you accept the challenge, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. A final note: if you need help tracking the number of characters in your story, there is a nifty online tool that will count for you at charactercountonline.com.
I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing us a new prompt.
