With the school year starting, I haven’t had much time to post. However, I did want to share some more of my #twitterfiction. A few of the posts are tagged differently (#microprompt, #thepush, #zealouswriter, etc.) but remain examples of #twitterfiction as far as I am concerned. Generally, my posts could be categorized as science fiction, although a few may contain elements of dark comedy or horror. A few don’t fall into any single genre.
There are plenty of additional examples posted on my Twitter – @jojascully. You can also find a few here. I try to post at least a handful each day.
Let me know what you think!
Unexpectedly sent into the game to return a punt, he was elated until he noticed a burning wick sticking out of the laces.
No matter how tight he made the stitches, this arm just didn’t look good. He grabbed his shovel and went to find another.
He lowered the phone just as a voice answered. She was still gurgling with life. He didn’t want help to arrive too soon.
Police cruisers shot through the cemetery gate with blue and red flashes. His career as a grave robber had been a brief one.
He stepped back slowly. The dryer had been eating socks. Now, the dog was missing and there was a collar in the lint trap.
From the ground, he could see the graveyard was alive. Birds. Rodents. Insects. All examples of life. He was no longer one.
He never had so much cash in his wallet. Who needed two kidneys? One was fine. Now, where to first? The hospital or Macy’s?
First responders to the circus train wreck gained a new appreciation for the “death-defying” feats of the performers.
The car ride to the ocean had always been long, hot, and boring. Now that the world was drying up, this was even more true.
His release from the hospital occurred just before a zombie plague was introduced to the emergency room. Finally, a lucky break.
Reaching the top of the cliffs, he strained his failing eyes to focus on the sea. He wished to see a spring tide one last time.
Charred survivors of the blaze were rushed to the hospital. The spread of the fire to that haven was an unwelcome development.
