"Soft-Core Friday" - Say it in a tweet

For Soft-Core Friday today, I'm taking on the writing challenge from Red Writing Hood over at the new Write on Edge writer's forum. It's been a while since I have linked up there but I really liked this one. 

The challenge:
 This week’s assignment was simple: write a story of your choice. The catch? Write it as a tweet. Use only 140 characters – including spaces.







Here's mine. 

She looked over at the dark shape sleeping beside her. She had to leave in a minute, but she didn't wake him. This was a moment just for her

Short and simple but could say a lot depending on what you add to it in your own mind. 


And because it's "Soft-Core" Friday and all and what I actually wrote isn't very scandalous, I'm updating this post to include a song that cracks me up every time I hear it. My favorite line "I don't want to be loved, I just want a quickie...."  Poetry, really.  The song is pretty much crap but the comedy in the lyrics really makes me smile...

  2. This could definitely go either way. A sweet tender leaving, a rather nasty one...is she reflecting happily, or ominously?

  19. 140 characters are the new "picture" that is worth 1,000 words... at least, that's how it seems to me.

  27. I love that story - it seems both open to interpretation yet to have a specific meaning.

    And thank you so much for introducing me to that song - I'm now going to share it with all my friends!

  28. I'm always amazed by how much some people can say in so few words. Great job!

    I think the mark of a truly great writer is being able to say more with less.

  29. I read this several days ago, but was sans-computer and my iPod is good for reading, tweeting and that's about it! I loved your mini-poem, my darling. Beautiful words as always.~
