In my never-ending quest to stay in contact with my readers while enticing new readers to give my series(s) a try, I have decided to listen to suggestions made by the Webguy. He hasn’t led me astray yet. Well, there was that one time, I confused Instagram with instant potatoes, and he just laughed… Okay, back on target. I’ve decided I must check out Twitter.
My past arguments about how I’d rather be writing instead of doing other things still seems valid, but I do take a break now and again. These are usually the times my head’s in the cupboard looking for a Zebra cake. Perhaps this will curb that impulse. I doubt it. But if I can dine off witty remarks instead of extra carbs, then it may be worth learning a new skill.
Take this morning for example. I started at 4AM writing. By 11:25AM, I was looking for a distraction. My FB buddies were all busy working real jobs. That’s what they keep telling me nonwriting endeavors are called. But they had time to tweet comments on a range of interesting things, everything from answering questions presented by Goodreads to following various writers and celebrities. Not everyone tweets every day, but you get these inciteful and, yes, ridiculous thoughts from people you may be interested in.
I’m just starting, so I’m looking for entertainment. I steer clear of politics because, face it, it doesn’t make anyone happy these days. Instead, I will look at the funny side of things. How much will I tweet? It depends on the day, the muse, and the long shadow of the Webguy.
