Tweet the Throwaway Sentence

Throwing out a perfectly great sentence, are you nuts?

Nope, just realistic.

If it doesn’t fit with the flow of the story, it has to be removed regardless how much I love it.

I call this sentence killing or otherwise known as the throwaway sentence.

Is it easy to do? No, but I have to admit I’ve gotten used to ripping them out of a story.

Now I wonder if these sentences should find a home of their own, which in this social media age, they can do.

It’s called a tweet.

I wonder what Neil Simon’s tweets would have been.

Tweet your great sentences that you had to throw out. Let’s see what happens to them — will they grow a life of their own?
