Twitter Micro-fiction And Writing Hashtags

One bonus of throwing myself into NaNoWriMo this year has been the discovery of a whole world of micro-fiction challenges on Twitter, each governed by its own hashtag.

As someone who greatly misses the old Kindle Weekend Write-Ins I have been looking for an alternative to their 500 words in 48 hours challenge, and the variety of micro-fiction hashtags on Twitter is bewildering. There’s certainly something for everyone.

Throughout NaNoWriMo I have been taking part in the #WIPitWed challenge, posting a small, Twitter friendly excerpt of my Work In Progress every Wednesday. Of course, that has meant letting bits of my first draft out in to the wild, snippets like this one for instance. But at least no-one’s told me I’m shit yet. 🙂
