Our Next Project . . .Twitter Fiction

In honor of Twitter’s upcoming “Twitter Fiction Festival” our next writing project as a class is going to be Twitter Fiction. There are two common types of Twitter Fiction:

(1) THE VSSAS- The “Very Short Stand Alone Story”, is one story in 140 characters or less. Beginning, middle, end, all in one tweet.

(2) The Extended Story- One story, told through a series of tweets, but still limited to 140 characters per tweet.

So which type of story are you going to tell?
