10 Short Stories in 140 Characters or Less – Part 3

Since no one actually pays attention to me on Twitter, I started posting Random Snippets of Dialogue from stories that I will never write. That morphed a bit over that initial 10 posts to something slightly more interesting to me – Twitter-sized character studies. In effect, short stories of 140 characters or less.

Noah – Movie Review (as a thread on Facebook with my friends)

Noah – Movie Review (as a thread on Facebook with my friends)

I also realize it is has turned out to be a fairly polarizing film for a variety of reasons. I was thinking of writing a fairly involved review of my feelings for it, but then decided that the…
