Tendrils Frequently Asked Questions

"All too easy to pretend that the little things don't matter,
even though life itself is but a collection of little things."
From the poem, "Too Easy," by C.V. DeRobertis

What is a Tendril?

A Tendril™ is a short, self-contained work, which typically takes the form of:
  • Single text piece (a.k.a. a one-liner)
  • Short poem/prose/verse
  • Two to three sentences or short paragraphs
  • Small image (with or without text)

Tendrils appear in the on-going series Today's Tendril…™ and in Tendrils™ collections (numbered, named, or themed), as batches ("A Batch of..."), or in sets (e.g. "Three Tendrils for Today").
