S. Kay is a talented twitter fiction writer. Here are her 140 character thoughts on twitter fiction.
tm: Tell us about yourself and what you like to write about?
S: Lately I only do microfiction (SF/horror/literary), but did write a novel and published short stories and poetry. I’m also a pro blogger.
tm: Why do you write twitter fiction?
S: Microfiction’s great because it’s fast to write, publish, and read. It’s a challenge as a new literary form, and suits my writing style.
tm: Do you remember the first twitter story you read? What was memorable about it?
S: I don’t remember the first story I read, but @Outshine was my first twitfic zine. I loved the concept and started writing it.
tm: What do you think is the most important element in a twitter story?
S: The twist at the end after a vivid setup. It needs to be strongly evocative, quickly, then move a corner and be unpredictable but strong.

Hello Wonderful Writers!
The Submishmash Manager has changed. Instead of uploading documents you can submit your twitter fiction or poetry in a text box. Hopefully this will save you time. If you have already sent a submission the “old” way, don’t worry, I have it and will respond shortly.
If anyone has any trouble using the text box or if you do not get a confirmation email saying that your submission has been accepted please let me know (trapezemag (at) gmail (dot) com).

Leathery wings tangled, she falls from heaven’s love-making, crashes to Times Square. Rises from the crater. Smiles at the morning after.

Enchanted by the rich texture of the child-statue, I asked her what sparked the interest in sculpting. Taxidermy, she clarified.

Three eyes are far better than two. Thanks Santa! The new one in back sees everything I’ve been missing. Like you with that meat cleaver.
