Here’s a present to while away the long minutes (over 15,000 to go) until the TwitterTale begins. This story features the main character (though unfortunately Salty’s name changed to “Sol” after publication), and is effectively a prequel.
It is NOT NOT NOT okay for children. Contains child and other abuse.
Always wanted to be part of a flashmob? Or a pirate crew?
To help “launch” the twitter novel on Saturday 1 August, dress in your most piratical gear and relax calmly in/around Tilleys Devine Cafe (Lyneham shops, Canberra, Australia) or browse in/near the excellent secondhand bookshop next door.
Arrive/don pirate gear at 2pm (park at the nearby schools if necessary), and vanish or change into an ordinary citizen at 2:30pm.
Bonus points for speaking as a pirate.
Yes, there will be candy and free flash (under 1000 words) stories. I and my minions will be randomly handing them out to any pirates we see/hear.
Hello and welcome (you scurvy landlubber with the face of a rotting dog). It’s almost two weeks until the tale begins, so here’s a few things to think about in preparation: ADD. Pirates. Tropical sunsets and a blind first mate. Do parrots tweet?
