Watch the April 2016 Winning 140 Character Twitter Short Story.

BOOGEY:

Interview with Adam Martin:

1) What is your very short story about?

I think it’s about a corporate assignation. The guy knew something but he didn’t even realise it.

2) What motivated you to write this story and submit it to the festival?

I love to write and I’d never tried micro fiction before.

3) What movie have you seen the most in your life?

Probably Dodgeball or Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

4) How many scripts and stories have you written?

A crap tonne. But I rarely finish or do anything with them.

5) What artists would you love to work with?

Garth Ennis, Adam McKay and Gary Oldman

6) What is your passion in life?

The reduction of physical exertion.

7) Any tips for other writers who want to write a 140 character short story?

It doesn’t matter how vast the world, how deep the emotion or how complex the plot, every story can be reduced down to 140 characters. It’s all about trimming the fat.

10 WINNING STORIES:

Twitter Short Story by Abraca Debra

The sweet sound of nothing can be the loudest sound in the world, it echoes through my soul and makes me long for the noise it once knew.

Boogey by Adam Martin

Eric left the club & answered his phone. The bullet killed him, his body was collected & the area cleaned before Sarah hung up.

Lost at Sea by Denise Walker

She stood with her feet in the water and let the tide push and pull her. Smile forever gone, she longed for the sea to swallow her whole.

Love, Unaccomplished by Gemma Jones

She felt universes collide when they touched. He felt that too, but not with her.

The Break-Up by Gwen Winegar

Memories just haunt me, taunt me
Perfect pictures now protruding in places private
Your scent lingers
You are everywhere and yet nowhere

Her name is Winter by Hannah Gabrielle More

As Summer turned to Autumn and the leaves fell from the trees, she became distant. She became as cold as the brittle leaves beneath my feet.

Unknown Destination by JaVohn Perry

Cecilia walked down a deserted, cold and dark road wondering how she got there. Afraid, she trembled step by step to an unknown destination.

Beautiful by Jennifer Mackinday

You have a beautiful heart, he said
You have a beautiful soul, she said
We have a beautiful future, they said
And together, they did.

OUT, OUT DAMNED by Marielena

She ran breathless through the streets. Fog thickened. Steps plodded closer. She screamed when she saw him.
“Spot! Don’t run away again!”

Half Twit by Nick Westerman

You gave me 140 characters but I used just seventy – am I a half twit?
