My most recent Twitter crop of #writing angst

It took me a long time to come to terms with Twitter’s weird blend of watercooler/cocktail party/retail culture. But now I find it to be a fairly useful source of #writing tips and news. Here’s what I found most helpful this week.

A couple of writing tidbits

Hands down the most helpful tip I found this week was a link to Jane Friedman’s Book Launch Plan for First-Time Authors Without an Online Presence. In her post, she presents a simple, logical approach to marketing effectively, one person at a time, without breaking your budget.

My second favorite tip of the week came from Alexandria Constantinova Szeman, who described in loving detail how to turn your favorite movie into a master writing class. Just in time for winter break. 🙂
