It’s the first of May, 2021 , so I went through my social media feeds and grabbed all of the MicroStories I’d tweeted during – oh, the month of April (as well as the month of March, I’m cheating and combining those months) and have collected them here.

As a reminder, these represent story-essences composed using no more than 269 characters (so I could tweet them with the hashtag #MicroStory.)

Usually, I only tweet Science Fiction and Fantasy #MicroStories. April (and March) was no exception.

It’s January, 2021 , so I went through my social media feeds and grabbed all of the MicroStories I’d tweeted during the month of December. Okay, I also included all the MicroStories that I’d tweeted during the months of September, October, and November too, because friends, the final quarter of 2020 was not that productive with all of the shenanigans. You know what I’m talking about.

It’s May (FINALLY), so I went through my social media feeds and grabbed all of the MicroStories I’d tweeted during the month of April. (Also in March, because I honestly didn’t MicroStorytell enough in March to justify a blog posted collection of them on April 1.)

Usually, I only tweet Science Fiction and Fantasy #MicroStories. April (and March) was no exception. Well, there might have been at least one MicroStory that was pretty close to reality.

Warning: I’m not a writer, but I occasionally do write things. For 6+ years I’ve tweeted microstories, trying to fit something like a story into the length of a tweet. Some are more successful than others.

Recently on Facebook, one of my friends who reads my Twitter-length stories asked me what the rules were for writing microstories. (He sees mine on Facebook because I cut and paste from Twitter to Facebook – something that I didn’t have to do back in ye olde days because things used to be connected for cross-posting. But that’s not relevant here. I just like complaining.)

So, I gave him my rules for writing microstories. And I thought I’d share them here, for no real reason.
