To Tweet or Not to Tweet
I set up a Twitter account in 2012, retweeted something just to test it out, and abandoned it completely. It seemed like trying to parse through a million text messages. Not my thing.
But today one of my stories was published online at Streetlight Magazine. And another story is included in Best of Ohio Short Stories: Volume II. And yet another just got picked up by The Bookends Review. (I am having a good year.)
I was asked for a Twitter handle today so Streetlight Magazine can tweet about my story - they called my story "fabulous" in the email, so how could I pass on that?
So I set one up. It's @TonjaMReynolds. I'm not really sure what to do with it. I am actually very computer-savvy and used to develop really complicated software and backend components (stuff that does magic in the background).
This week, I will try to find some of you and somehow attach myself to you.
I am going to use Twitter in a minimal way. I find social media to be a distraction from the writing. The novel is nearly done. I would be writing the ending chapters today, but my kids are sick and I'm doing this instead of that.
If you have a Twitter account, leave me a comment here and I will follow you (or like you or whatever the tweeting lingo is).
If you are here because of Best of Ohio Short Stories:Volume II or Streetlight Magazine, please leave a comment. I think I am open to anonymous comments - pretty sure.
And if you have any suggestions for adding a Twitter account to everything else without getting sucked into the black hole of politics and cute kittens, please speak up. :)
