The Tuesday Twitter Tale : Three Days in the Water

Tuesday, 22 March 2011

Another ship out here in the Pacific was a miracle. Jon screamed and splashed, unaware of the sharks circling in the water beneath him.

The Tuesday Twitter Tale is a weekly work of tweet-length fiction. It is posted here and on Twitter (along with the #vss - very short story - hash tag).


  1. Is it cheating to cleverly use the title to also tell the story?

  2. Thomas,

    Yes, almost certainly! Although, in my defence, some magazines do ask for a title that helps to set the scene for the story.

  3. Words Crafter,

    I know. It's either one thing or another.

  4. Oh no!!!! Let's hope they're basking sharks..!

    Take care

  5. Old Kitty,

    Indeed! Sharks are much maligned creatures of course; I feel slightly bad in using them as villains.


I'd love to know what you think.
