In the competitive world of books, authors are urged by their agents, editors, colleagues, family, pets and anyone else with an opinion including the cashier at the grocery store, to use Twitter. So I did. It's actually amusing and I find I can keep in touch with my own sons easier there than through emails, but it's also easy to get lost in it. Sometimes I find myself reading too many posts, spending time searching out new people to reply to, trying to write a clever tweet that actually says something instead of "hey, look at me." One month later, I'm not exactly breaking any records on getting followers which makes me wonder if I put the "twit" in twitter. Could I be doing something wrong? Or should I just get back to my manuscript and do what I really should be doing... Writing.
