More than three hundred tweets later, and this “thing” came about.
I was tweeting with LA Witt and a few other authors three days ago and I made some offhand comment (so many tweets ago so I can’t even remember at this point exactly how it was worded) but I said the lot of them would make a scary group together writing. I would totally read it but do it from under my bed with a flashlight because it would probably bring about the end of the world. The only person who could complete the mass annihilation of the world was Rachel Haimowitz and then LA Witt said, “We’re the Five Writers of the Apocalypse” and I couldn’t breathe I was laughing so hard.
Rachel wanted to know if they could ride horses. Oh noooo, in my brain they have to BE HORSES and you know what style they have to be.
LA Witt tweeted, “Tell us you are going to draw this, right?”
THE NEED TO DRAW THIS BECAME GREAT AND UNSTOPPABLE.
I sat back and watched their tweets fly as they all decided which of the horses they would be, what accessories they would have and so on. Aleksandr Voinov pleaded to have his signature pinstripe suit and I love him and could not deny him. He’s charging off to war or to make food…he’s quite the cook so I’m not sure which. Heidi Belleau says she’s all about the chocolate so I had to give her a hershey kiss with the red stripe over it as she’s Famine. LA Witt and Anna Zabo have some battle going on over a tiara so LA is stalking her over it. Their argument over this alone is one of the best tweet contests ever.
Yes, there are six here and not five. (Yeah, yeah there were four horses in canon but who the hell cares.) Every group of writers needs a Editor of Destruction so the group isn’t complete without Sarah Frantz to wreak terror.
(Did the group notice they are flanked by evil editors? This was planned…art genius if you ask me *pats self on back*)
For the first time ever, I live blogged art and posted updates as I went via Twitter and that was more fun than I’ve had in ages. I might have to do that again at some point.
It doubled my followers on Twitter in about 24 hours, too. :D
