Pen and print out of emoji used for planning the writing of Cat Cocktail

Cat Cocktail - an emoji story

A story written in emoji

Emoji are amazing. I don’t use them very often in writing, finding them difficult to work with but the concept and their chance at becoming (if they haven’t already) a universal language is beautiful.

I tried to write a story using only emoji and decided against any complex words made up of multiple characters that could only make sense in certain languages.

It’s short, silly and flawed but I really wanted to give it a go.

I will certainly try to write another in the future.
