Twitter



After resisting the urge to Twitter for a long, long time, I have finally succumbed. Yes. I am Twittering and you can follow me at: http://twitter.com/amloughrey


There are many quite exciting things happening on Twitter at the moment. Many YA novelists are twittering as their characters, such as Kathleen Duey http://twitter.com/kathleenduey and Melvin Burgess http://twitter.com/MelvinBurgess.


Sarwat Chadda twitters quotes from his book Devil Kiss at: http://twitter.com/devilskissbook and Julia Golding is running a competition to help her character, Catherine Royal, solve riddles at: http://twitter.com/CatherineRoyal.


Authors like Katie Fforde http://twitter.com/KatieFforde, Jill Mansell http://twitter.com/JillMansell and Mary Hoffman http://twitter.com/MARYMHOFFMAN prefer to Twitter than use Facebook. I always wondered how come their status updated loads everyday on Facebook. I suppose it is very quick and easy.


You can also follow publishers, newspapers and magazines. So it really was about time I joined the bandwagon - better late than never.

Welcome to Twitter! It's about time....!!!

Actually, I am writing an entire novel in tweets and the archive is here http://russet-one-wing.blogspot.com/ if you are interested. It is, by far, the most interesting writing experiment I have ever attempted...

Now to go find you and follow you (that sounds creepy, but YOU know what I mean...)on twitter...
