|Rudolph says, "You can do it!"|
So let's be just as brilliant -- but brief.
Here's the challenge: Create a full Christmas story in 140 characters or less on Twitter. Just one tweet with the hashtag #xmas140.
Remember, a good story should have a beginning, middle and end. And it should have a touch of humor or tension -- or both -- to keep it interesting. If you need a few tips before you dive in, check out this article: "How to Write a Good Twitter Story." Or, for a little inspiration, see how some authors did it when The Guardian gave them a similar challenge: 140 character novels.
What have you got to lose? Try it!
1. Write a Christmas story in 140 characters or less
2. Tweet it with the hashtag #xmas140 (If you're not on Twitter, post your 140 character story in the comments below.)
3. Read what others have tweeted.
I can't wait to sip my eggnog and read the stories!
