Today I have a riddle for you.
Q: What day of the year is a command?
Think a little about that question.
Today is March fourth.
🙂 See it?
A: March Forth!
So, do you want to know how I am “marching forth” today? Well, I signed up on Twitter this morning. Yep! I now have a Twitter account.
A few months ago a good friend suggested I try it, so I looked into it but just wasn’t ready to take that on. Since then, several writers in the chat rooms have talked about the benefits of Twitter and convinced me to do it. Okay, I finally see the possibilities and now I’m a Tweeter, um .. a Twit? Oh, no! don’t like that one! ; ) hmmm .. now I am a twitter-er? I think that is what we are called. Well, anyway, now I am a Twitter user! I have made my initial post to get things started, and I also became a follower of a few members with whom I was already familiar.
It is a little daunting, but nonetheless, if I want to break into the world of writing for children I have to take the steps to get there. A little at a time.
I also learned yesterday that all publishers now expect their authors to do a lot of the work themselves of promoting sales of their books. In an earlier post I may have come across as sounding quite lazy, but not understanding how things have changed I thought traditional publishers still did most of that. Of course, I am not opposed to doing what needs to be done. I just didn’t like the idea of being an ‘unknown’ and having to cart books all over the place to sell them. Do I have a lot to learn, or what? 🙂 Yes, I admit I do. And I want to learn.
In the meantime I continue to read, and I have added more to ‘My have read” list’.
So, do you use Twitter? And .. what are you doing to ‘march forth’?
Thanks for reading, and … Creative Musings! 🙂
Hmmmm. Twitter. I’ve really been holding out on that one. I guess I just don’t get it.
You know what, Laura? I don’t either, yet. 🙂 It is just a bunch of very short posts. Maybe it will combine well with blogging but I have yet to find that out. Apparently it is an abbreviated way of getting in touch with people and finding out who is out there. Time will tell.
Thanks for posting. 🙂
Twitter is not that bad..it sorta grows on you. Find someone to follow, see who they follow and then you will have a plethora of people to follow.(tongue twister intended). Happy Tweeting!
So, it is all about following people, being followed, and getting to know what and who they know? That doesn’t sound so bad. Thanks for the tip, and thanks for posting. 🙂
I’m so glad you are finally part of the twitterverse. 🙂 I didn’t “get it” at first either. It took me a while. Now that I do, I really enjoy and am learning a ton!
I very much look forward to learning a ton. 🙂 Thanks, Donna.
