Red Writing Hood Prompt: Write a Story as a Tweet

There is a site called “Write on Edge”  that offers writing prompts (among other things) to give bloggy people ideas and inspiration for writing their blogs. I noticed a few of the people who visit here belonged to that site and I’ve been checking it out on and off for a while.  Until now, I just haven’t had the time to participate in a prompt, which makes me feel just a little guilty every week that passes by, so thanks for that.

Stupid day job.

Anyway,  this was a quick and easy one!

Prompt: Write a story as a Tweet:


Stormy night. Fancy dinner party. Lights go out. Shot rings out! Chaos! Accusations. Detective arrives. Interviews. Tension! Butler did it.


Eat your heart out, Agatha Christie.

    Ha! I love it.
    I’ve been really “meh” about the prompts lately and probably won’t do this one, but I look forward to reading them (most likely because they’re short and sweet. I dig that.)

    oooohhh…I want to play!!

    It was over. He dropped the folder on the table. I stared back. Handing him the cash, I ran out & never looked back. Worst restaurant ever.

    Weeeeeeeeeee! 🙂

    Although it would have been that much better if the detective did it….although that would have screwed up your character limit!

    Love it!

    I must admit, if you’d worked in a twist, I think it would’ve popped a bit more.

    But an entire story in 140 characters is very impressive. I’m still not sure how you did it…

    Hopefully you’ll join the prompts more often.. 🙂

      Well hell, not if you’re going to criticize me… 😉 I did the butler thing on purpose, because I was trying to do a 140 character parody of that type of whodunnit, but I certainly understand your perspective!

    Thank you to everyone for the comments – my spambot freaked out apparently and I didn’t see a lot of them until today!
