Thanks all for the encouragement to tweet! I started my first twitter account! Now I have to spend time looking for people to follow! I also have to figure out how to put my profile in, upload a photo, and post in my blog and website how to “follow me.” I think that’s how it is done!
I’m sharing one of the recent pictures my husband took. This is the Florida version of a tweet!!
I find myself behind the times. I was slow to adopt Facebook. This is my first Blog. I don’t own a smart-phone (I just recently got my first blackberry for work, and it is the old kind – no touch screen) and I don’t even have a GPS in my car. I’m not sure what has happened here. Back in the 80’s I was on the cutting edge!
I was posting to online bulletin boards before anyone had ever heard of the internet. I was learning word processing and spreadsheets before Windows. In fact, when Windows came out, I was right on that bandwagon! So, what happened? Somewhere between then and now, technology has passed me by and I’m just now trying to figure out how to catch up.
So, now when I’m trying to figure out how to get the word out about my upcoming e-book (due out any minute now!), I’m wondering about this tweeting stuff.
I don’t follow anyone and no one follows me. I don’t even have an account. But, I know how popular this service is and I think I’m going to have to eventually break down and do it.
What do you all think? To tweet or not to tweet?!?!
I mentioned in an earlier post that I’m working on a short story about a Hover-craft racer. I write mostly Sci-fi and fantasy, in case you are not aware. I also like to put unusal twists or strange things in my stories. In thinking about the Hover-Craft story, I was thinking that since I’m also blogging about my writing that I should do a survey and see if you all like a few of the situations I’m thinking about adding to the story.
So, as mentioned previously, the story starts out with a race. After that the main character, Geddy is transported against her will to another dimension. (that’s ALL I’m giving away!) So, here are some things that might happen to her in this world:
She steals a hover craft and races away trying to escape the bad guys
She’s thrown in jail because she doesn’t have the right ID (and they think she might have killed someone)
She goes on a date with a rich guy
She breaks into a secret lab to steal the technology to send her home
She decides she likes this world better and heads for the beach
So, without giving away anything else, you all can comment your votes for which of the above scenarios sounds the best – or throw in your own idea.
I’m going to put this story on my website when it is finished – so everyone will be able to see just how it turns out.
The update went to publish today! It should be ready by Monday! Stay tuned for updates… and check out my website: http://www.sjordanasble.com
