TwitterTales…the creation of writer @seamusspeaks…a complete short story in one month, one Twitter post a day, 140 characters at a time. Not as easy as it sounds, and it doesn’t sound easy. But fun? Most certainly.

@Seamusspeaks invited me to participate last December–I came on board 4 days late, which led to the title of my first TwitterTale…“Four Days Late.” It began the story of Lady Marian of the Barony, as she struggles to find her lost family. Little did I know what writing a TwitterTale would be like–I had visions of completing a novel in less than 30 days. Heh heh. Not happening. December’s Tale was rather rushed at the ending, as I ran out of days.

But I was ready for January. I wrote the whole month’s Tale in one sitting, and posted one segment every day (unless I forgot, ahem). And I am continuing the saga each month.

But as it might be hard to find the Tales in the mountain of my Twitter Blither, I’m posting them in their entirety, to date, here on my blog. I’ll add every day’s post until the month’s story is done.

So whether you follow me on Twitter or subscribe to my blog, I welcome you to check back daily for the latest part of the adventure!

And stay tuned…because February is underway…


December ’07: Four Days Late
January ’08: At the Cry of Ne’erday
February ’08: The Scar Alliance

  1. This was interesting, a monthly perspective. I am quite new to twitter. I like this adventure of mousewords.

    It is different how twitter is about getting out there but how it can be tightly in our life. We find a way to work it in and work around it. It can be a bit of an obsession but it is fun; we find a balance.

    As long as I find a balance, I can be moderate – the peace can be there.
