Hey, the kind people who follow me on my blog might be aware that I occasionally post any MicroStories that I’d tweeted in the previous month. Back in 2013, I started tweeting very small flash fiction “stories” (they had to be small, because … tweets …) and the first of the month, I collected up the previous month’s elevator pitches and made them available on the blog.

Back in 2016, I’d realized that my three-year-anniversary of pretending to be a writer had happened, so I collected all the small stories of the three years and made them available in a macro-collection of micro-stories.

Another three years have gone by, so here is the next batch.

With the results of the 2016 election, my productivity took a hit as a lot of time spent in imaginative creativity (lets pretend I have that) was spent instead on anxiety and stress. On the average, every other month I’d crank out micro-stories. To balance things out, Twitter doubled the length a tweet could be. Originally, I resisted writing stories larger than the original tweet length, but I eventually gave that up.

It’s September, so I went through my social media feeds and grabbed all of the MicroStories I’d tweeted during the month of August.

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. August was no exception.
