Humpbuckle Tales Author Reading 2: Tales 11 to 22
Humpbuckle Tales Author Reading 2: Tales 11 to 22
This episode is also available as a blog post: http://humpbuckletales.com/2021/11/01/humpbuckle-tales-author-reading-2-tales-11-to-22/ Welcome to the second author reading of Humpbuckle Tales. I will be reading 12 tales today (11-22). If you want to watch the video, or listen to the podcast, of the first 10 episodes, you’ll find them here (video: https://youtu.be/Q30LsG1ZubA or podcasts https://anchor.fm/humpbuckle-tales) Humpbuckle Tales are tiny stories, comprising only fifty words. They don’t take very long to read (around 10 to 20 seconds!) but they do take quite a long time to write (sometimes several hours). Each fifty-word story is written to tell a tale independent of the others. But, as they say, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Each fifty-word story is part of a bigger tale. The characters are linked. The stories are connected. You’ll find a new fifty-word Humpbuckle Tale every day (Monday to Saturday) on the Hive blog (https://peakd.com/@humpbuckletales) and on Sunday there will be six new fifty word stories. For those of you who don’t know what Hive is: it is like a blogging platform but it is on a blockchain. Posting on the blockchain means you get rewarded in Hive tokens (a cryptocurrency). I use the Peakd front end (unlike other blogging platforms Hive is open sourced so you can access it by using various “front ends” including Hive.blog). You can find humpbuckle tales on peakd.com/@humpbuckletales You will also find the stories at humpbuckletales.com (one story per day, 7 days a week) Humpbuckle Tales are read by the author, Bruce Arbuckle (@felt.buzz on Hive)

Humpbuckle Tales 1 – 10 (an author reading)
Welcome to Humpbuckle-on-sea! In this small coastal town, there are many stories to tell. Humpbuckle Tales will tell them… 50 words at a time. My name is Bruce, I’m also known as Felt.Buzz. One of my creative passions is writing and I really enjoy writing microfiction: very short stories. Humpbuckle Tales are tiny stories, comprising only fifty words. They don’t take very long to read (around 10 to 20 seconds!) but they do take quite a long time to write (sometimes several hours). Each fifty-word story is written to tell a tale independent of the others. But, as they say, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Each fifty-word story is part of a bigger tale. The characters are linked. The stories are connected. You’ll find a new fifty-word Humpbuckle Tale every day (Monday to Saturday) on the Hive blog and on Sunday there will be six new fifty word stories.
