Attempting the Literary Tweet

The quarterly Electric Literature is sponsoring a contest for the best tweet #stuffmymusesays–Colson Whitehead will judge, and the winner gets a Sony Reader.

So far many entries are sort of irritating, in the mode of high school theater kids:

I’m sorry, Calliope isn’t home right now, but please leave a message and she may or may not get back to you.

But the would-be amusing (ha-ha) tweeters have a week to get their acts together. Contest closes this Friday.
