Yay Twitter! Contest!
I've said this many times and I will say it again. I love Twitter. I have gotten so much further with my writing career with it than without it. If you are a writer and you're not on Twitter, here's what you're missing:
1.)A fingertip on the pulse of the publishing world. There are tweets and links galore from everyone in the industry 24/7 that provide invaluable information.
2.) #AskAgent! Approximately once a month, a few literary agents volunteer their time to answer questions. Editors often jump in too!
3.) Connections to other authors. This has been my favorite. We constantly motivate each other and share our struggles. In fact, I have found all my critique partners on twitter.
4.) Contests! They are all over the place. You can win free books, critiques, and other fun stuff.
And speaking of contests: I am having one here. My 1000th follower will win his or her choice of one of these gently used classics.
1.)FRANKENSTEIN, by Mary Shelley
2.) INFERNO, the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri
3.) UNCLE TOM'S CABIN, by Harriet Beecher Stowe
4.) JANE EYRE, by Charlotte Bronte
5.) THE ELEMENTS OF STYLE, by William Strunk and E.B. White
