Way back when I first started this whole Twitter thing it was because I was jealous (and really, what in my life hasn't been based solely on revenge? #toomanytocount).
But a very silly techno-phobic friend of mine (I won't name names, but her Twitter handle is @TheDeeView #somuchfordiscrete) somehow started Tweeting and got over 1,000 followers!
How could I stand for that??? I am the webbie! I am the techno-phile! #damnit
So I went and scrounged up my old Twitter account and started tweeting away.
I had absolutely no idea what I was doing and absolutely no purpose.
I mean, I didn't title my blog the same as my Twitter name. Brand, What Brand?
But like lightening in a bottle, crafty grew and grew. I got my business its own account @zerotosold to help authors/screenwriters/directors get themselves and their work out there.
With those two accounts up and running beautifully I thought, ok, I've done it. I have proven I can tweet (ok, fine and I liked it #likedittoomuch #waytoomuch)
Yet somehow despite the fact craftycmc is my personal account, my writing has leaked out and since my homies are writers, I've been getting more and more DMs and @ asking about writing and the craft of it.
Even with all that influx, I just briefly answered writing questions when I could. I wanted to keep craftycmc light and fun and frankly #allaboutme #andmyissues #nogreatsurprisethere
But then what does my business partner have to do? Start his account for acting, @ActingNoDrama
Now he is having the time of life tweeting about his true love; acting.
Now, of course, I want to Tweet about writing!
24/7. Blog about it. Talk about it. Swim in a stream of writing craft. #Iamfreakinginsanethatway
So, yet another endeavor based on jealously and unbridled passion #Iamlikeapuppydogoffaleash...
I introduce to you.....@WritingNoDrama
Be forewarned! I love writing and writers, but I'm not the 'hold-your-hand-and-pat-your-head' type of coach.
I'm the "Shut & Write!" type of coach! (don't believe me? check out my first blog, so very accurately entitled "Shut Up & Write" @http://bit.ly/dBYr6s)
Basically if you are serious about your writing (no matter your skill level - craft can be taught, desire and dedication cannot), I am serious about helping you write.
