(⚠️ Ramble alert :- The ‘real’ post lies in the form of an image at the very end of this post. The rest is just information about the format and my personal patented form of blabber. Choose wisely.)
Welcome to my first ever attempt at a brand new format of creative writing called ‘140’
What is ‘140’?
For those of you who don’t know 140 is a form of literature that requires you to express yourself in just under 140 characters.
Yup. You got that right.
And definitely not sentences.
Just characters. That includes space, punctuation marks, bleh & blah.
So, naturally, it really doesn’t allow a writer to just go on & on &…
(In short, this format is meant to discipline writers like me. Because, I have OBVIOUSLY exceeded 140 characters a LONG time ago.)
You got it. Right?
But then, why only 140? Why not 100? or 150?
Well, this very question struck me when I first heard about this format. And,like everyone else, I decided to Google about it.
The results I obtained were very interesting…
You can read the complete article on the link provided above, but I hope you get the gist by the summary I have written here.
That’s probably why this format came into being.
Not that I believe in numerology, but I found this format genuinely interesting especially seeing that it resonates with today’s fast & furious world where people hardly have time for loooong rambles.
(Like this one right here)
And hence I decided to experiment with this format when I opened an account on terribly tiny tales or ‘ttt’ as it’s fondly known.
Hope you guys like it!
Am all ears for any kind of honest feedback! 😁
Until next time!
