Your Plot in 140 Characters

Have you seen this slide show of all the Pixar movies being summed up in 140 characters? It’s awesome. My two favourites are the one for Toy StoryA cowboy toy and an astronaut toy must overcome their differences to find their way back home to their loving owner. Hilarity ensues.—and the one for UpThe world’s saddest montage is followed by an old man’s trip to S. America via a lot of balloons. Neighbor, talking dog, and odd bird join. The opening to Up is one of the saddest things on film. I still don’t feel like I could make it through without a real life breakdown.

How easily can you guys sum up your stories—or your favourite stories—into 140 characters? Does it still sound like a good story? Could you pitch that tweet and convince someone to read your book?

I tried to sum up Catalyst in 140 characters. It’s wasn’t as easy as I thought.

A former Luddite discovers who is behind his family’s murder and uncovers a plot that sheds doubt on the integrity of the leaders of Earth.

Here is Beacon.

An AWOL soldier has to find a way to defeat an invading fleet while avoiding the general who’s trying to take all the power for himself.

The only thing I don’t like about these is I want to read more from you but they are too long to include hashtags. If you write one include it in the comments or hit me up on Facebook so I can read it.
