No, I’m not talking about a dictionary with Twitterisms in it. And I’m not talking about fairies that send Tweets to people instead of fairy dust.
I had an idea recently. It just kind of struck me, kind of like the way a bullet hits a tin can and the can goes flying off its little stand and falls to the ground, a dented twisted piece of metal good for nothing but to recycle.
Okay, that was a terrible analogy. How about the way an arrow strikes a target full of straw?
Um, no, that was terrible too…The idea struck me the way a hammer strikes a bell and it rings out for the whole town to hear…only to get a crack in it years later and be put in a museum.
Well, that analogy was a mixed bag.
But now…I ramble. 🙂
An idea struck me today, like an idea hits a brilliant person. (Ooh! Bingo!) What if we sent queries in 140 characters or less to an agent during a hash-tag chat? Twitter-queries! For instance, mine would look like this:
@randomagent Intrested in a puzzle-mystery set in a 50’s-like future, featuring banned books, taboo history, double-crossers, & young spies?
I’m no agent, so I’m not going to set one up. But I like to think about things. An interesting idea? Maybe? Maybe not?
What would your Twitterery look like?
