It’s another Monday, so it’s time to look at what the trouble with writing is once again. This week, we’re looking at not talking to other writers.
I know, a lot of you are going to protest. Either, “I do too talk to other writers!” or “But I could be spending that time writing!” Shush now, just read. Protest later.
I’ve been on Twitter quite a bit more than I was there for a while lately, and I see links everywhere.
I know, I’m following too many authors and not enough readers. Blah, blah, blah. I’ve heard it before. Not my fault the only people that follow me are authors and people that sell you Twitter followers. I just follow back the authors.
But come on now, that’s not the point, is it? We should be talking to each other instead of just spamming each other with links. Talk to each other, people.
I admit it, I’m guilty of it, too. Too much spam and not enough talk. This post is as much for me as it is for anyone else, so any of my Twitter followers that may want to call me a hypocrite, I’m well aware of what I’m doing. Believe me. At least I admit it.
But guys, let’s be honest, Twitter was made to make connections. Connections are an extremely important part of being an author, so why are we not making them? I don’t know about you, but I consider that to be a pretty big problem.
I guess that’ll about do it until then. We’ll talk more about this on Wednesday. Until then, make more connections!
