The Siblings Gif

140 tales of woe

About the Book

Siblings Gif is an experiment in collaborative (very) short form writing.

Every day we write a new story in ping pong style via twitter. We add it to the book that evening. When we hit 140 tales, we'll start replacing one old story with the new one. We need your feedback as to which story should stay and which should go.

The objective being to create a rolling collection of (very) short stories written in an idiotic tweet based manner.

We love short stories. They can be by far the best stories, because they can be told quickly, or embellished endlessly to last for hours.
