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. 🙂
A wee bit of encouragement
A dash of writerly angst
Been there. Done that. #WritingSoulMates
And finally, my favorite writing tweet of the week
What about you? Do you use Twitter to become a better writer? What were some gems you found this week?
