Twitter...Where have you been all my life?


Twitter. Tweets. Hashtags. Oh my!

This has been my first two weeks on Twitter. How was it, you ask? Got ten million hours?!?
I’ve never played Candy Crush, but if I did, from what I’ve heard, I have a feeling it would be the same addictive rush. Being on twitter is like being in a place that houses everything awesome! Friends. Readers. Writers. Book Publishers. Agents. Actors. Shows I love. Even the superstars that make up the exercise videos I drag myself to every morning!  Ok, scratch that. I don’t want to think about exercising while I’m on twitter. That’s definitely not a Retweet! 

As a writer of fiction, I love analyzing the story lines of my favorite shows. I love to hash out the plots the morning after over coffee with my work buds, especially for shows like The Good Wife and The Walking Dead. Two of my favs! What if this happened? Why did she do that? What will happen next? Would I have approached the plot differently? On Twitter, I found a whole community of people that love to do the same thing.

Most importantly, Twitter allows me to hear about about writing news from my fellow writers, and the ability to Retweet awesome news that’s happening all around us. How wonderful is that?


Twitter, where have you been all my life?


For now, I’m still a newbie, learning as I go. My next big writing event after joining Twitter is the New Jersey Romance Writers Put Your Heart in a Book conferences (#NJRW13) coming up this weekend Oct 18 - 19. I hope to be tweeting my way through and finding all about the fabulous speakers, workshops and pitching events!

If you didn’t get a chance to sign up for the conference, the Literacy Book Fair and Author Signing at the conclusion of the Put Your Heart in a Book Conference is open to the Public, and takes place Saturday, October 19, 4:00-5:30 pm. A portion of all proceeds from the Book Fair will be donated to Literacy Volunteers of America, New Jersey.

Look for me at @cdclemetson and I’ll be sure to look back! Until then, Happy Tweeting!
