I subscribe to a writing blog called Write Anything. If you follow me on Twitter (LauraMcWriter) you’ve probably seen some of the blog posts – I tweet them a few times a week, sometimes twice a day. Every week the good folks at Write Anything host a Form and Genre Challenge. This week’s is Twit-Fic – a story of 140 characters or less. I have discovered that I enjoy writing poetry and I particularly enjoy being parsimonious (my new favourite word) with words, so I wanted to take up the challenge of writing a story of less than 140 characters. I hope you’ll enjoy this story and, please, check out the other entries by heading over to Write Anything’s Form and Genre Challenge post today. Hey, why don’t you take up the challenge?
“Go home,” I said. “You can’t come sniffing around here every day.” In the end, I had to break up with his dog, too.
