101 Upcoming Writers You Should Be Following on Twitter – Day 6

Spread the love

Toby Keith has a great song that goes something like this:

Basically, talking about you all the time is fine, but I just want to talk about me.


The reason why a blog is not as cool as Twitter is that I really DON’T want to talk about me all the time. I’m boring. I’m not very cool. And, I know the punchlines to all of my jokes. It’s really hard to get a good laugh out of myself. I would much rather talk about you.

But…now that I’m Twitter-free, I don’t have anyone to talk about. I have attempted to build a Facebook world that is similar to my Twitter world, but it is totally ridiculous. On the other hand, I have managed to have several South Africans ask me for personal loans and been contacted by old would-be boyfriends about whether I’m “really” married. Ugh.

So, I want to talk about the people on Twitter who are amazing. I’ll try to get everyone on the list, but I can’t guarantee I won’t miss someone. But for now, these are all my FAVORITE people – the people I really love to follow. They are there, they are real, and I even know some of their addresses (not, like, in a really psycho way…but kind of like in a “you’re a nice kind of psycho” way). Anyway, I love helping bolster people’s followers, especially those who I really admire and respect.

Wow, Willow, I just found this. Thank you so much for the mention. Very kind of you.
It would be nice to build a community on facebook like we have on twitter.
I think it’s a grand idea. Be well, kind one. <3

OH, DELIA!! WHAT A SPLENDID IDEA!! See? I was so excited about that I actually used the word “splendid” in a sentence.

I will find you on Facebook and will support this amazing new world of yours. You are brilliant and wonderful, and I will be your acolyte. A weird, sticky acolyte who can never find her keys.

This is so cool: I only have to kill 14 people to reach number one!

This is both hilarious and disturbing. Which makes it my number one favorite comment of all time.

I’m incredibly honored (and a little choked up) to be included on this list… I do hope that if you decide quitting twitter forever is the best decision for you in the long run, you still find a way to keep in touch with some of us…

Thank you so much! I’m hoping to get a handle on it enough to come back. But, this time, I’ll be less available mentally, emotionally, and virtually. 🙂

Aw thanks Willow – I’m totally honored! REALLY miss ya on Twitter but respect that you did what you had to do!

So, I’m scrolling through this list because if Willow Becker recommends a writer to follow, I’ll likely follow them. I’m already following most of these writers, but imagine my surprise and utter delight to find my name on the list! Thanks bunches and bunches, Willow! x

LOL! You’re very welcome (and deserving, I might add). I had considered doing #SixWord synopses of each of you, but I thought that might be a leeetle on the obsessive side. But, here’s what yours would’ve been:

Flash in the fiction, not pan.
