Winter…the days are getting shorter and have you noticed how we communicate is also getting shorter?
We live in a world of texting (“hw r u?”) and Twitter madness that forces us to express ourselves in 140 characters or less. (God help Tolstoy…)
Not to mention acronyms — we plop onto the couch, turn on the DVR or watch a DVD while drinking our OJ, then check out this week’s episode of NCIS.
Now a UK newsletter has come up with “hundred word fiction.”
Indie Book Bargains UK-based Daily Kindle Book Deals
Everyday they publish Kindle deals and a short story with no more than a hundred words.
I thought it would be fun to take up the challenge so I put together a story in less than 100 words. Since it’s Christmas, I wrote a holiday story for the UK newsletter: “Santas, Soldiers, and Orphans, oh, my!”
Here’s how it appears on their website:
Check out my Naughty Christmas Carol book video with my voice-over and the Sugar Plum fairy music along with a very sexy excerpt on my website at: http://jinabacarr.com/anaughtychristmascarol.html
Thanks, Louisa! The photo comes from Dreamstime.com — they have great photo stock and are reasonably priced.
My hunky Scrooge in "A Naughty Christmas Carol" is also very naughty…
Such a *naughty* cover, but nicely done!
