The Web is Made for Writers
I went to a workshop at the 2012 Willamette Writers conference and a geeky type talked about this idea. You, as a writer, have an advantage in using social media. You already know how to write, we hope. Facebook, Twitter, a web page all require writing. So you are in your element. Which of these you use depends upon what you are trying to accomplish. Social media has been described as a conversation, so have a conversation and not a monologue. Jane Friedman said in another conference to have a web site as your central platform and use the rest of social media to push your audience to the web site. I would add that you need content for a good web site. I didn’t put up a web site until I published my first book because I didn’t feel I had a lot to say. Now it’s hard to shut me up.

I'm a serious writer, meaning I have a regular daily writing habit, and I'm interested in sharing my work through publication. My favorite literary form is the novel. I write to entertain myself and my readers.
