The Watcher: A Twitter Fiction Zombie Story

19 Jan

Through a gap between the shutters I watch the zombies stagger ever closer and wonder if our defences can withstand yet another attack.

Yesterday I posted a flash fiction zombie story. As I mentioned in that post, my girlfriend challenged me to come up with a Twitter fiction zombie story. That is an entire zombie story written within the 140 characters allows for posts on the micro-blogging site Twitter. Talk about having to pare a story down to just the bare essentials! I found flash fiction difficult enough but Twitter fiction was much harder. This was my attempt. It has 135 characters (excluding the title which was just added for this post) and I’ll let you decide whether it works or not. Either way, I think I’ll try something longer next time.
