The Tweet story competition!


The tweet story competition:

The object of the game is to tell a story in ONE tweet (140 characters or less), hashtags are allowed.
Profanity should be kept to a minimum.

Post your ‘tweet story’ in the comments section of this blog with your twitter name  and TWEET the blog link, make sure you add @catconnor and @Jhoustonturner to the tweet so we know you’ve entered! 

Do not tweet your story. Post it here. :)

The competition will run for 7 days. That’s it. 7 days. Then we (Turner and I) will choose the winners. That might take us a few days - so we’ll let you know when we’re done!

The winners - that’s right, plural, will receive electronic copies of a James Houston Turner Talanov novel and a Cat Connor Byte series novel.

There is no restrictions on who may enter.
One story per comment.
Up to FIVE entries per person.

Competition is OPEN from Monday October 22 until Sunday October 29.

Example of a tweet story:
7 times the door slammed. The last bang caused a spine-chilling scream. Prying the door open, fingers fell to the floor. #lessonlearned

Please note:
We need to be able to get hold of the winners and will contact them via twitter, so make sure you ‘sign’ your entry with your twitter name!

"Crime does not pay, or so they say. I on the other hand think it rewards rather handsomely. I swooped up the diamond ring & slipped it on."

The king returned to find the princess pregnant with her chastity belt still intact. It was a locked womb mystery.

Sensing shadows draping his feet, he snapped a glance over his shoulder into the light, missing the darkness beneath, tumbling abyssward.

The dreaming priest emerged victorious the moment he took his first step away and toward.

He suppressed his uneasiness and searched for the words to say “No.” But it was too late. The car salesman had already smelt his self-doubt.

It's the dead of night, and we stared deep in to the eyes of the moon. Together we sat on the edge of the world. Your touch, my apocalypse.

"It is with great regret and deep shame that I resign this post," the Minister began. His phone began to ring. It would not stop that day.

Her lover had been dead only a day.She already missed so many things about him. It was difficult to kill him but she did what she had to do.

She loved him with all her heart. Soulmates, they said. Washing blood from the hammer, she realized that not all stories have a happy end.

Movie-star beautiful, but she just lay there, not moving, not making a sound. Zip up, unfinished. World's worst whorehouse: Madame Tussauds.

His last meal was over. Now, restrained and prepared. The woman, red eyed sat behind thick glass. Although innocent he would die today.

Sudden decision to go shopping saved her life; the house burned to the ground. Handsome fire marshall could be "the one" she's been waiting for.

She closed her eyes, took a deep breath and released it. With one last look at her husband she let the gun drop to the floor. Then she left..
