Short But Sweet: R.L. Stine Tweets a Horror Story

Did you guys see that R.L. Stine recently tweeted a mini horror story? You may know his name from the Goosebumps series, but did you also know he’s an Ohio dude? You can find out more about his hometown roots in a biography.

Personally, I’m intrigued by Twitter storytelling. It’s abbreviated, so it has to get right to the point, and you can ratchet up the suspense of a horror story by choosing where you cut off the words and how long you wait to post the next installment — much like cliffhanger chapter endings. Then again, you could look at it as a writer’s cop-out. What do you think?
