"Let what you’ve achieved be enough." A wonderful message to writers: (by @RLLaFevers @writerunboxed)
Preparing for Success (and finding more time to write)
Writers: do you have an email newsletter ? If so, send me the link to subscribe!
Not sure if clients ever expect to get this response from me via email, but it just happened: "Squeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!"
My blog post for tomorrow just hit the 2,000 word mark again. Writing shorter is indeed more difficult than writing long, for me!
I just changed a meeting location for today from "coffee" to "ice cream," because: PRIORITIES.
... and the folks at @WritersDigest gave me a discount code to share: $50 off with the code: DANBLANK50
Excited to be speaking at the @WritersDigest conference in NY: a panel w/ @author_sullivan @BKGKristen @jpfine
And feel that there is an opportunity to eschew "best practices" in social media, in order to create more meaningful experiences.
I keep coming back to this post: I Am Changing How I Use Social Media: MORE Social, LESS Media
This post embodies so much of what I believe for writers: THANK YOU WRITERS:
“Our audience has no expectations of us at this point.” - a quote from a client, and a prompt for wildly exceeding those expecations.
Who started it all for your creative spirit?
Instead of reaching for more "followers," treat the folks you DO connect with as the most important ppl in the world
Just had a long conversation w/ @wordbobby about the history of @realjohngreen & @hankgreen. The scope of what they created is astounding.
Writers: What Are You Afraid Of? My latest post for @WriterUnboxed
The good folks at @WriterUnboxed are holding a writing conference in Nov. Early-bird rate ends today:
Can't even express how awesome these 3 interns are already. I'm beginning to not even be able to envision my company without them.
"What followed was ten years of battle scar–worthy attempts at becoming a writer." @mbhide's journey:
10 minutes until the #bswt chat begins - talking about summer reads and more!
Apologies: for the next hour I'll be Tweeting A LOT more than usual as part of the #bswt Twitter chat w/ @mirandabw
The final step before posting to @WriterUnboxed was searching for cat photos in the middle of Starbucks. Which is never embarrassing, right?
Yippee! RT @SarahMMcCoy: TOMORROW: @MirandaBW is talking summer reads and #Bittersweet at #BSWT 1-2pm EST & giving away copies.
Running all my computer backups before the weekend. Remember: please backup your stuff!
Uh-oh, my guest post for @WriterUnboxed tomorrow just passed the 2,000 word mark. Need to edit!
Thanks to @juliebuntin, @rachelfersh, @clmporg & so many others for the great conversation last night! Photo:
The poetry community is tight-knit, which seems to create unique challenges for social media. TRUST was a biggie here.
I met a wonderful group of smart & enthusiastic poets & small presses last night @clmporg to talk about social media & audience engagement.
The next session of my Blogging 101 online course for @WritersDigest begins this Thurs! http://register.writersonlinew...
