The 28 tweet-sized stories experiment

I’m seeking your help.

I’ve been participating in the Twittering Tales weekly challenge most weeks over the past few months and I really enjoy it.

When I resumed blogging a few years ago I used to do a strict under 100 word story a week and I found it invaluable as it helped to write more succintly.

These days I share my writing with my photography and try to get a good balance. I don’t want my blogging week to be punctuated mainly by flash fiction challenges.

A 280 character ‘story’ is is a different category however and although it can be a real challenge to condense what you want to say in such a small format, it is invariably satisfying when it comes together.

So I’ve decided to set myself a challenge for October.

I’d like to write a tweet size story a day, inspired by a photo, for 28 days starting on October the first.

It would be even more interesting if I didn’t have to choose the photo myself, although I’ll do it if I have to.

Please send me a photo or a link to a photo so I can build a (not more than 280 character) story from it.

It could be a link to Pixabay or another stock image site such as Pexels or Unsplash.

As a pseudo reward I’d link to your blog and of course give you due credit if its your own image.

Let’s do this!

Featured image is the deck walk of the Crown Princess sailing off the coast of Ireland earlier this year.


      1. I like the image and a tweet sized story would be interesting. Any way of using it without purchasing it? πŸ™‚

        Maybe I’ve misunderstood.

        If I have to purchase 28 photos I’ll be out of pocket!
