My concept of a “twitter tale” is a three-part story, each part being a twit of exactly 140 characters, that includes an inciting incident, an event that pushes the character to the ending, and a twist ending. Here’s my first one. (i.e., don’t expect too much yet.)
Mike saw the sunken dock. A huge fish lay on it, immobile. He poked it with a stick. “Yo!” said the fish, and moved. “Got a message for ya.” #
“Not again.” Mike sighed. “Big One wantsa see ya.” The fish kicked, splashing Mike and was off. Mike stripped, dove in and kicked down hard. #
“The key!” Big One arred. “They feel pain.” Mike cooed. “Pain? Show me!” Mike speared his eye, swam ashore and drank a fresh beer, cackling. #
I wrote this entirely off the top of my head, as I’m sure shows. You may find it entertaining to know that fish are reported not to feel pain.
